Michigan Republicans met on Mackinac Island this weekend for the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.
"Officially and unofficially, it is a place for Republicans who have the interest and the means to make it up to Mackinac to show up, to network, to strategize, to fundraise, and to party," Pluta said. "All of those things did indeed happen."
Listen above to hear what Republicans on the island said about President Trump and his impact on the party's brand.
You'll also learn which GOP Senate hopefuls could have the best chance to unseat Senator Debbie Stabenow, and why Attorney General and candidate for governor Bill Schuette was especially popular on the island. Hint: that popularity was only partially due to Schuette's Scoop Shop.
