The 10th Congressional District GOP Reagan Dinner will be held May 25th, 2017 at Shelby Gardens in Macomb County. RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel has been confirmed as the keynote guest speaker for the event.
McDaniel previously served as the Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman. She led the GOP to victory in the state of Michigan, retaining control of the state House, and voters backing a Republican for president for the first time since 1988.
McDaniel was outspoken in her support for President Trump early on. She was an at-large delegate for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention and vowed to support the will of Michigan voters, who chose Trump overwhelmingly at the polls in the Michigan primary. McDaniel also urged her fellow Michigan GOP delegates to support the Republican nominee amid the “Never Trump” movement.
McDaniel went on to lead a successful field operation in Michigan that encompassed thousands of enthusiastic grassroots activists. She is credited by many, including President Trump as one of the main reasons Michigan voted for a Republican at the top of the ticket for the first time in decades.
“Ronna has been extremely loyal to our movement and her efforts were critical to our tremendous victory in Michigan, and I know she will bring the same passion to the Republican National Committee.” – Donald J. Trump
McDaniel will now return to Macomb County where she spoke before a Donald Trump rally at Freedom Hill Amphitheater on November 6th, just two days prior to the election. Macomb County has been characterized as the perfect example of the Trump movement taking hold across the United States. A working-class area that typically votes Democrat, known for its large population of auto workers and having a strong union base. Counties similar to Macomb across the Midwest in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin were key to Trump’s success.
The organizer of the 10th Congressional District GOP Reagan Dinner is Shelby Township Clerk, Stan Grot. Grot is a past Chairman of the Macomb County Republican Party, and currently serves as the 10th Congressional District GOP Chairman.
Grot’s enthusiasm and hard work as a grassroots organizer is unparalleled. He recruited over 600 candidates for Precinct Delegate in Southeast Michigan this election cycle. His efforts in building a grassroots army were crucial in the Macomb County Trump phenomenon. In early October, he joined his fellow Republican Congressional District Chairs, National Republican Committeemen, and the Chair and Co-Chair of the Michigan GOP in writing a letter to Michigan voters titled “A Divided Nation or United States, the Choice is Clear in November.” The letter painted Hillary Clinton as the voice of division, and urged voters to come together and work to support Republican candidates from the local and state level, to the Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Although no formal announcement has been made, there is talk that the 10th District GOP Chairman could be making a bid for Secretary of State in 2018. The rumor is being spread by grassroots conservatives encouraging Grot to enter the race because of a six point voter integrity plan he’s called for. The plan would:
- Require citizenship documentation for new voter registration
- Implement mandatory photo I.D. before voting
- Purge voters registered in multiple states
- Increase oversight of Detroit public accuracy test
- Utilize social security database to remove deceased voters
- Audit cities and townships that lack competency to conduct elections
Previously, Grot served as the Assistant Secretary of State under Candice Miller. If he were to run, inviting the RNC Chairwoman back to Macomb County could be part of his strategy to reinvigorate Trump supporters and turn them out in 2018.
