Below is an e-mail that Michigan Republican Party staffer, Norm Shinkle, has been passing around to other MIGOP Staffers. This is unacceptable for the Michigan Republican Party to get involved in a contested race.

Barb and Jennifer,
Below is a sample email that Don Nugent needs you to send to your GOP Delegate friends.
We need to get the truth out. Attached is Melaine Foster’s MSU note.
I hope you can forward this to folks voting this weekend.
I wanted to let you know about the MSU Trustee race and some of the untrue things that are being said about Don Nugent. Rumors are spreading that Don is 83 years old and suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Neither is true.

…Before you vote on Saturday make sure you know the truth and facts about the candidates.
Let’s win in 10. See you this weekend.
