8th CD GOP Announces the official kickoff of the 2024 MI election season

The official kickoff in Michigan of the 2024 election season is right around the corner! 

Announcing the first annual 8th District Roundup at the Bavarian Inn Lodge & Conference Center on January 12 - 13! 

Republicans have an opportunity of a lifetime ahead of us in the new 8th Congressional District of Michigan!  It’s not every day that the 8th Congressional District seat (now held by Dan Kildee), becomes an open race – up for grabs -- as it will be in 2024.

We have work ahead of us and no time to waste.

It is no coincidence that one of our first events right out of the gate in January 2024 is a ‘round up’ event.  A political round up is a gathering or bringing together of Republicans from all walks of life and corners of the organization.  Yes, that means all Republicans, united under one "big tent."

This event provides the foundation for us to come together and get to know each other in a more relaxed and fun atmosphere, to eat some good food, and to meet and interact directly with legislators and primary candidates – all to help us unify for the win in 2024.  Friday night promises an evening of networking and socializing, and Saturday morning brings opportunities to interact with legislators and primary candidates.

Tickets to The Roundup make a great Christmas gift for your Republican friends. Don’t wait until January to make your reservation – those who want to make a weekend out of it and bring your families should reserve a room now at reduced rates.
