"Lansing — The Republican-controlled Legislature has put on a fast track legislation that could affect the upcoming statewide elections by making it more difficult to unseat incumbents, but some parts of the proposals are causing infighting among GOP conservatives.
When lawmakers return Tuesday from their holiday and deer-hunting break, they could give sitting elected officials more political capital by doubling the campaign contribution limits and lifting a ban on party caucus committees spending money defending incumbents in primaries.
