Victory Through Unity – Now is the Time for the GOP in Macomb County to Pull Together

Rob Montilla

Rob Montilla

The Primary Elections are over and we Republicans now know who our candidates will be to take on the Democrats in November.  For many municipal races, the primary winners will run unopposed so they are guaranteed victory – congratulations to all.

However, as every election has winners, every election also has candidates that didn’t make it across the finish line.  In Northern Macomb County, we had some grueling and sometimes nasty primary races that left candidates and their supporters with bitter feelings.  This certainly is not unusual for hotly contested races.

But now that the primary election is past, it is time to put aside our past divisions and focus on the general election.  This is where all of us as Republicans need to be united as the biggest objective now is to remove Barack Obama from the Presidency.

The Republicans have a great ticket with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  They are going to bring ideas and solutions to the national discussion about how to restore our country’s greatness.  It is our job to put Macomb County in the win column for them.  Every Republican in the county must be committed to this goal.

History will not care about the divisions faced in some of our local races or who emerged as a power broker from a county convention.  History will care about who we elect as our next President of the United States.  And history will care whether we lost our Constitutional Republic or if we won it back.

Our goal is clear: elect Mitt Romney as the next President of the United State and Pete Hoekstra as the next U.S. Senator for Michigan.  This will not be easy and every one of us will have put in extra effort to make this happen.

What we do not want is to wake up on the morning of November 7, the day after election day, and find out that Barack Obama won and then question whether we could have done something more.

I look forward to standing side-by-side with you as we fight for victory in November.

Rob Montilla,
Chairman, Republican Committee of Northern Macomb County
