The Republican National Committee has stepped in to resolve the dispute over who is leading the Michigan Republican Party

A source in the room confirmed the national governing body of the Republican Party voted to form a temporary committee.

That was at the RNC’s meeting this week in Las Vegas.

The committee will determine whether Kristina Karamo or former congressman Pete Hoekstra will be recognized as the chair. Both were at the meeting but neither was seated.

Karamo’s year-long tenure has been marked by controversy, including a collapse in fundraising.

Former President Donald Trump endorsed Hoekstra last week and it’s expected that will carry a great deal of weight in the final decision.
