EXCLUSIVE: Michigan GOP Chairman Candidate Ron Weiser Once Donated $1000 to JOE BIDEN
Michigan Republican Party Chairman candidate Ron Weiser donated $1,000 to Joe Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Weiser made the donation to Biden in September of 2007.
The news was first broken by political consultant and Michigan GOP Chairman candidate Brandon Hall, who addressed the matter in a post on his personal Facebook profile.
“Everybody makes mistakes. When Michigan Republican Party Chair candidate Ron Weiser donated $1,000 to Joe Biden during his previous run for President, that was a mistake,” Hall said. “Helping to fund Joe Biden’s sick, twisted path to power was definitely a mistake.”
“Mr. Weiser must explain to our Precinct Delegates, as well as our grassroots leaders and activists, just why he is a Joe Biden donor. That’s a fair and reasonable request,” added Hall, who also asked Weiser to consider making an “offsetting contribution” of $1,000 to a Michigan pregnancy center.
“Joe Biden’s support of radical, evil policies that mercilessly kill our unborn is unequivocally unacceptable,” Hall said.
To conclude his statement, Hall hoped that Weiser’s donation to Biden would be addressed “quickly, so we can focus on the myriad of other important issues facing our state, our party, and our country.”
Weiser previously served twice as chairman of the Michigan GOP. His first stint lasted from 2009 to 2011, the second from 2017 to 2019. He was also the US Ambassador to Slovakia during the presidency of George W. Bush from 2001-2004 and currently serves on the University of Michigan Board of Regents.
It will be interesting to see how Weiser addresses this donation, especially as a lifelong Republican. Not only do Michigan Republicans deserve an answer, Republicans and conservatives nationwide do too.
