Dixon lost the race for governor to incumbent democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

This comes after Dixon tweeted a memo from the Michigan republican party that blamed her for the loss.

Dixon released the following statement Saturday evening:

“Since the Michigan GOP election memo was released, a number of people have reached out and encouraged me to run for state party chair, which I am considering.

“We must have a unified party that focuses on winning votes and elections.

“In the post-COVID, Prop 2 era, our party must be competitive and it has not been for a variety of reasons.

“I believe in a bright future for Michigan where we forge a path to win republican majorities again through family-friendly policies.

“I will be announcing my plans in the coming days. I appreciate the encouragement and continued feedback.”
