Lieutenant Governor Calley to face GOP convention challenge

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley is facing a challenge at the Republican Party's convention for his spot on the ticket this fall. Wes Nakagiri turned in 33 signatures from 13 of Michigan's 14 congressional districts to GOP headquarters in Lansing on Friday to force a convention vote on Governor Snyder's running mate.

Party rules allow for the challenge if a candidate for lieutenant governor can get the signatures of 21 state committee members from at least seven congressional districts by July 25th. The party's Policy Committee is now reviewing the signatures to make sure they're valid.
