A Michigan judge issued a preliminary injunction removing Kristina Karamo as chair of the Michigan Republican Party.

In January, a faction of the state GOP had voted to remove Karamo from her position and replace her with former ambassador Pete Hoekstra.

Karamo remained defiant and continued calling herself chair.

Karamo declared, “I’m not going to jail.”

“I’m still legally the chair,” Karamo insisted at the time.

She claimed, “The majority of the (Michigan Republican Party’s state) committee stands with me.”

The plaintiffs, seeking to establish Hoekstra as chair, sued Karamo.

The judge ruled the plaintiffs were likely to prevail, that Karamo was properly removed per party bylaws, and prohibited her from calling herself chair.

Karamo was present for the ruling and said she would comply but did not say if she would appeal.

Hoekstra, endorsed to take over by Trump, said it was time to unite and support Trump as the party’s presumptive 2024 nominee.

Earlier, the RNC had also recognized Hoekstra as chair, leading Karamo to call the national party corrupt.
