State GOP opening additional offices
LANSING, MI (AP)-- Michigan Republicans say they plan to open five regional offices but aren't yet saying where they'll be.
State Chairman Bobby Schostak says the party also will hire more staff and invest in new technology as part of an effort to improve Republican results in the 2014 elections and beyond.
Schostak tells the Detroit Free Press the GOP also will improved training for staff and volunteers as it rolls out a "refreshed playbook" that the party completed at its meeting in Boyne Falls this month.
He says the best way to improve connections with the grassroots is to have a physical presence that lets party representatives participate in local organizations such as sporting groups, youth organizations and parent-teacher organizations.
Party spokeswoman Kelli Ford says it hasn't determined the locations yet.
