Did the Republican Party endorse candidates for the August election?

Yes, you can find endorsements on their website: https://www.ottawagop.org/

The Ottawa County Republican Party is known for its strong conservative values and dedication to upholding the principles of the Republican Platform.

In previous years, the Republican Party did not vet or endorse candidates, which caused confusion and allowed people to run for office as Republicans, whether or not they were actually Republicans.

Currently, a Democrat can sign up to run as a Republican in Ottawa County. Also, Democrats can crossover and vote for whatever Republican candidate is most liberal.

The Ottawa County Republican Party wants Republicans to vote in the August 6 primary election for true, conservative leaders.
