The state Bureau of Elections is continuing its probe into whether money paid by the Michigan Republican Party to former Secretary of State candidate Stan Grot violated campaign finance laws.  

Jack Rollow, spokesman for Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, confirmed Thursday that the investigation would continue despite the Michigan Republican Party earlier this week withdrawing a letter sent last week to the Bureau by then-party chair Laura Cox.

Cox's February 4 letter triggered the investigation.

The Michigan Republican Party convention is Saturday. The top job in the party just became a public brawl. 

The current chair of the state Republican Party is Laura Cox. She was not planning to run for re-election. But then, as first reported by the Detroit News, she made allegations of financial impropriety against the man expected to be the next chair of the state party, Ron Weiser, a Regent of University of Michigan.

Former ambassador, Ron Weiser, has emerged as the presumptive next chair of the Michigan Republican Party.

That’s after current chair Laura Cox decided not to seek another term.

Weiser is a wealthy businessman who has served in the role twice before – from 2009 to 2011 and from 2017 to 2019.

Fresh off statewide defeats in 2018, Michigan’s Republican Party picked new leadership Saturday.

“Are you ready to win in 2020!” National Republican Party Chair Ronna Romney-McDaniel said as she rallied the state GOP convention in Lansing.

The party needs rallying after losing races for governor, attorney general, and secretary of state in 2018. Republicans held onto control of the state Senate and House but by slimmer margins.

Governor Snyder's proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2018 came out this week.

One thing it did not contain is a tax cut. That's something many Republican lawmakers want to push through.

One such lawmaker is Laura Cox, chair of the House Appropriations Committee and Republican Representative for the 19th District, representing Livonia. Cox joined Stateside to talk about what she would like to see changed with Michigan's tax policy.
