Michigan Republicans Cancel Election Night Party

Michigan’s state Republican Party has opted to cancel its Election Night bash and instead funnel that money into campaigning. “It is a costly endeavor and we are using all available resources to elect Republicans,” said Sarah Anderson, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Republican Party. The state Democratic Party is still holding a large party at the MGM Grand casino in Detroit. The cancellation is an unusual move for a state that usually holds two competing parties on the night to celebrate elected officials and activists. Current polling has Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton winning the state by a wide margin, with an RCP average indicating at least a 10 percentage-point victory.
