As the state's chief executive, Rick Snyder has a long-standing right accorded to all such chief executives: that being the right to indicate his preference for his party's state chairmanship. Should he choose to exercise that right, as he has done in endorsing Robert Schostak (the sitting MIGOP Finance Chair), then it is with the expectation that his preference will be respected. Moreover, of the seven or nine names that I've heard tossed about as possible challengers, none save Troy Rolling (the sitting MIGOP Grassroots Vice-Chair) has emerged as an actual candidate, and I'm not sure that Rolling's challenge should be taken seriously.
But Mr. Schostak is a wise man, and he is well aware that the voting delegates of the Michigan Tea Party Alliance (who will carry considerable clout on the state convention floor) require some convincing before they'll buy into his candidacy. It was with this very thing in mind that he scheduled a couple of events - occurring on December 28th - with the leader of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus, Michelle Bachmann.
