Anuzis, who now lives in Washington, has locked elbows with Brewer as the two politicos work together to try and have National Popular Vote legislation put on Michigan's ballot in 2022 so people here can vote on it and potentially influence outcome of the 2024 presidential contest.

Saul Anuzis, former Michigan Republican Party chair, and Mark Brewer, former Michigan Democratic Party chair, submit ballot petition language to the state Bureau of Elections on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.
