Part-time Governor Kristi Noem takes her Presidential campaign to Michigan this weekend. She is the first confirmed speaker listed on the website of the Michigan Republican Party’s 34th Biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.
Now I can’t imagine Noem is going there in person. I mean, the big Buffalo Roundup is happening in Custer State Park this weekend. There’s no way Kristi would miss the chance for this photo opp and the chance to pose for another portrait of herself playing cowgirl that she can auction off to her adoring fans!
Noem could just be Zooming in to the Mackinac meeting. But she could make it in person to both events. The actual roundup starts this morning at 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time, with buffalo handling this afternoon. Kristi could gallop around the park on her horse all day today and even stay for the Kirkhams and the Wilt Brothers country music show this evening and ride the hot air balloons at 7 p.m. Then she could hop on her plane at 8 p.m., be on Mackinac Island by 1 a.m. Eastern, zonk out, and be made up and crack the dawn at MRLC at her scheduled Saturday 8 a.m. speaking slot.
Joining Noem on the Trumpist-heavy Mackinac stage are Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Lindsay Graham, South Carolina Congresswoman and quisling Nancy Mace, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, Sean Spicer, Betsy DeVos. Cruz gets the prime Friday night speaking spot; Ricketts and Graham get the Saturday night spot.
