Karamo’s Rejection Sets Stage for Legal Battle in Michigan GOP

Karamo, who did not attend the meeting, has said she would not accept the vote, arguing the meeting’s illegality and laying the scene for a judicial fight for the Michigan GOP’s top post. Current co-chair Malinda Pego will continue as chair until a new election is conducted.

Michigan Republicans face major divisions after record election losses in 2022. To recuperate, the party seeks an open U.S. Senate seat and supports the Republican presidential contender in the battleground state. Georgia, Arizona, and other swing states have had similar difficulties, affecting the 2024 presidential election.

Karamo, infamous for promoting election conspiracies after the 2020 election, ran for secretary of state in 2022 with Trump’s support and lost by 14 points, which she refuses to admit.

Congressional Leaders Urge Karamo’s Resignation Amid Financial Woes

Eight of the state party’s congressional district chairmen want Karamo to quit due to the party’s financial problems (almost $500,000 in debt as of October) and internal discord.

While Karamo is being removed, her supporters say the meeting was not called, complicating matters. The party must conduct a March 2 convention to assign 39 of the state’s 55 Republican presidential delegates, with the rest based on the Feb. 27 Republican primary, amid this chaos. Republicans want to capture a Senate seat and retake the Michigan House in November.
