Punch Thrown in Michigan Before the GOP Confab Begins
The fight for the GOP nomination has literally turned into a fight in Michigan! Just in time for the GOP Confab. That's going on in Mackinac Island starting today... But it really started last night. The alleged punch took place at Horn's Bar, a popular nightspot on Mackinac Island.
John Yob, a Grand Rapids political consultant who is national political director and chief Michigan strategist for the Rand Paul campaign, said on Facebook Friday morning that he was punched in the face inside the bar by Rich Beeson, who is deputy campaign manager for Rubio, a Florida senator.
"I ran into a guy named Rich Beeson, who frankly I didn't even know who it was at first because he isn't relevant in our political world," Yob said. "He literally physically assaulted me by punching me in the face. The state police are looking for him. I have it on video, from multiple angles. This will play out in the national media in the next few hours."
