The Republican National Committee meets in Las Vegas this week with no Michigan Republican Party chair in attendance amid a fight over who’s in charge

The absence of a Michigan party chair at the national party meeting occurs as the RNC is also engulfed in controversy heading into the 2024 election cycle.

The RNC has agreed that Kristina Karamo was properly removed as chair by a vote of members of the Michigan GOP’s state central committee.

In a separate vote, members of the committee also selected former congressman Pete Hoekstra as chair.

Karamo still insists those were improper votes and she remains the state party chair.

The national party has also not given its recognition of Hoekstra as the new Michigan GOP chair.

On Friday, however, former President Donald Trump – well in the lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination – endorsed Hoekstra in a post on his social media platform Truth Social.
