Recapping Two Days at the 2015 Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference
Held every two years since 1953, the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference brings together Republicans from around the country to tiny Mackinac Island — located between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas. This year’s lineup of presidential contenders speaking to the conference included Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, and Rand Paul (Scott Walker cancelled, then re-scheduled, then cancelled again due to poor weather conditions).
Additionally, numerous panels, events, and happy hours (both official and un-official) kept the attendees busy and the walks around the island, there are no cars allowed, brisk.
Below are 12 pictures (all taken by my iPhone 6) that describe some of the conference.
