LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – There is now one week and one day before the voters take charge of the race for president.

Meanwhile the respective party chairs in Michigan agree on some elements of the race but disagree on others.

Ronna Romney McDaniel and Brandon Dillon sort of like and respect one another but when it comes to the reasons their candidate is best, the disagreements begin.

State Republican Party chair Ronna Romney McDaniel leads off with “Donald Trump was chosen by the voters because of the unfavorable views of Washington D.C.”

To which Michigan Democrat Party chair responded with “we’re very proud of the nominee of our party. she brings 30 years of experience to the table.

Mr. Trump argues the election will be rigged and he brings cheers when he claims the media is biased.

Ms. McDaniel doesn’t believe the election is rigged. “No, I don’t think the election is rigged but I do believe the media has a biased in favor of Hillary Clinton.”

Mr. Dillon does not believe there is media bias but he says this about Republicans wanting to create chaos at the polls.

“You have the Republican chair who is criticizing her secretary of state on allowing fraud,” claimed Dillon.

“He is putting words into my mouth,” responded McDaniel. “I have never been critical of our secretary of state.”

The two also disagree on the alleged Republican strategy to depress the vote in urban areas to give Mr. Trump the win.

“They’ve said the key to victory is to suppress the vote to get blacks to stay home and likewise for suburban women,” said Dillon.

So when asked if the Trump campaign is trying to depress the vote, McDaniel responds “he is trying to win as many votes as he can which is why he is going to non-traditional places like Detroit.”

The two agree to disagree but in an agreeable manner.
