THERE COULD BE SOME FIREWORKS---
Bill Ballenger with Inside Michigan Politics says the gloves could come off this weekend at the Democratic convention.
"Right now there is no sign either one of these candidates are backing off," Ballenger said.
Ballenger says that could mean the position of Democratic Party Chair, which has been Mark Brewer's since 1995, could come down to a floor vote with challenger Lon Johnson.
"The parties try and avoid that if they possible can, it could get ugly and messy and not look good to public," Ballenger said.
"When people here him speak, I think they switch to Lon," said Former Democratic State Representative Mark Meadows.
Meadows says Mark Brewer's time is up.
"Most people in the state self identify as democrats, but we don't seem to get them to the polls and Mark's had his chance to change that."
And some say he hasn't, so Meadows says there needs to be a new approach for those in the blue corner to win the attorney general and secretary of state races.
And Ballenger says it not an easy knock-out for Republican Chair Bobby Schostak who is up against Todd Courser.
"I've gone to our community, I've raised record sums of money year after year and we are able to do that because of our agenda, we have great candidates," Schostak said.
"I believe it was a failure to have a bold conservative leader who is willing to advocate for the platform who had a strategic plan for winning, I believe it's absolutely essential that our Republican party to stand by it's platform and have a chairman who is willing to standby the platform," said GOP Chair Challenger Todd Courser.
Ballenger says both parties could win big this year. Those in each party can only hopethe man who survives is the best to lead their parties to victory.
Both parties run through Saturday. The Republicans are in downtown Lansing and the Democrats are in Detroit.
When Republicans and Democrats in Michigan will meet at different locations this weekend to decide who will lead their parties this year.
Nick Perreault explains why both parties could be in for quite a fight in 2013.
