Jason Roe, who became the executive director of the Michigan GOP in February, told news outlets he stepped down and informed Chairman Ron Weiser.
“I resigned my position as executive director and the reasons will remain between me and Chairman Weiser,” Roe said. “We’ve built an amazing team and I know they will be very successful in 2022. I look forward to helping however I can.”
Former and current Trump officials did not immediately comment on the resignation.
Roe, at the time a Republican strategist, told Politico in November 2020 that Trump “retains a hold that is forcing party leaders to continue down the path of executing his fantasy of overturning the outcome—at their own expense.”
“Frankly, continuing to humor him merely excuses his role in this. The election wasn’t stolen, he blew it. Up until the final two weeks, he seemingly did everything possible to lose. Given how close it was, there is no one to blame but Trump,” he added.
In another interview in May, Roe doubled down on his comments, claiming Trump “was seemingly doing everything he could to lose a winnable race.”

Trump received 232 electoral votes to President Joe Biden’s 306, losing several key swing states that he had won in 2016. Trump lost Michigan by over 150,000 votes after beating Hillary Clinton there by about 11,000 votes four years prior.
Roe’s remarks prompted Republican delegates to call on party leaders to oust him.Weiser defended Roe.“While there are a few activists who want to shrink our party and are focused on fighting with other Republicans, my team is focused on growing our party and fighting our true opponents, the Democrats,” he said in a statement to news outlets. “That is where our focus will remain, and I’d encourage everyone to channel their frustration toward winning in 2022, not attacking each other.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
