The Michigan Republican Party is set to hold its nominating convention Saturday in Lansing.

That’s when they’ll officially nominate candidates for lieutenant governor, attorney general, and secretary of state.

Party spokesperson Gustavo Portela says Republicans are focusing on affordability and prosperity this year:

“It’s very clear that enthusiasm is on the Republican side. And not on the Democratic side, as evidence in their last two conventions. Republicans, on the other hand, are excited, they’re ready for change, and they want to bring back opportunity into this state.”

There will be at least one contested nomination, former gubernatorial candidate Ralph Rebandt is running for lieutenant governor against the primary winner’s preferred running mate.
