An Ann Arbor businessman was elected leader of the Michigan Republican Party on Saturday, taking the reins for a third time despite last-minute efforts to derail his candidacy.

Ron Weiser and co-chair Meshawn Maddock got 66% of the vote during an online convention, the party said.

“The skirmishes of yesterday are over,” Weiser said in a written statement, adding that he will focus on defeating Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other ”far-left radicals” in 2022.
