DETROIT – University of Michigan Board of Regents member Ronald Weiser was elected to Michigan’s GOP chair during Saturday’s virtual Michigan Republican Party 2021 Convention.
Meshawn Maddock was elected as co-chair.
Cox had recently accused Weiser of paying out $200,000 in party money to Shelby Township Clerk Stanley Grot, when Weiser was chairman, for Grot to drop out of the race in 2018 for secretary of state.
Weiser had been the Michigan GOP chair from 2009-2011 and 2017-2019. He was the U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia under President George W. Bush from 2001-2005 and has been on the University of Michigan Board of Regents since 2016. His term expires Jan. 1, 2025.
