LANSING, Mich. (AP) — An Ann Arbor businessman has been elected leader of the Michigan Republican Party, taking the reins for a third time despite last-minute efforts to derail his candidacy.
The party says Ron Weiser and co-chair Meshawn Maddock got 66% of the vote during an online convention Saturday.
It’s the third time that Weiser has been chairman of the Michigan GOP.
Cox said Weiser paid a Macomb County activist $200,000 to stay out of the secretary of state race in 2018 when he last led the party.
Weiser says the money given to Stan Grot was for legitimate party work.
