Michigan Republicans are sticking with their party leader as the GOP tries to keep complete control of state government in 2014.

Bobby Schostak was narrowly re-elected chairman Saturday at Republicans' state convention in Lansing, 52 percent to 48 percent. He fended off a challenge from tea party enthusiast Todd Courser.

Schostak supporters credit him for helping the GOP maintain control of the state House and Supreme Court in 2012 despite President Barack Obama's and U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow's easy wins in Michigan. Schostak detractors say Republicans had a lousy year.

Gov. Rick Snyder supported Schostak's bid for another two-year term.

Delegates also approved resolutions supporting Michigan's new right-to-work law and legislation to no longer have a winner-take-all system for Electoral College votes.
