The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, May 29, 2019 | Susan J. Demas
The Michigan Republican Party announced Monday that U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will join the lineup for its biennial conference on Mackinac Island.
The confab is scheduled for Sept. 24 to 26.
“Lindsey Graham has been an outspoken advocate for conservative principles and is a dedicated problem-solver,” said Michigan GOP Chair Ron Weiser. “We are excited to have him join the great line up of conference speakers.”
Also slated to speak are former Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, all of whom are considered to be 2024 presidential contenders. Pence headlined the last conference in 2019 and drew national attention for his motorcade, even though cars are traditionally banned from the island.
