Mainstream activists in the Michigan Republican Party are going after what they call the "extremists" among them.

In an opinion piece for The Detroit News, Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley reports Michigan Republicans are taking "aggressive steps" to boot out members who would turn the party into "a narrow club of narrow thinkers."

One of the first orders of business: to remove Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema from his post following remarks he made that were perceived to be anti-gay and anti-Muslim.

Finley reports another group, Advance Michigan, has been formed to stop "far-right" candidates from winning primaries.

“We can sit on the sidelines or we can get involved and help get the right people nominated. Our mission is to promote common sense conservatism," GOP strategist Paul Welday said, according to Finley.

“We’ve seen time and again Republicans nominating the wrong candidates for seats we should win, but we lose. We can be our own worst enemy.”
