Former state Representative Andrew "Rocky" Raczkowski is getting out of the race to be the next head of the Michigan Republican Party.
Instead, he's backing Detroit-area attorney David Trott for the job.
Trott is the managing attorney and president of a Bingham Farms law firm. He hasn't been listed as a candidate for party chairman before now.
But Raczkowski says Trott already has the support of several high-ranking GOP officials.
Trott got his first taste for politics as a high school student when he volunteered for the Oakland County GOP in 1978.
With Raczkowski out, the race is down to Trott and Lansing-area businessman Saul Anuzis.
