Maryland Republican chair Dirk Haire won’t seek reelection, says party self-destructed in election with ‘counterproductive and petty nonsense’

November 15, 2022

Maryland Republican Party Chairman Dirk Haire won’t seek reelection in January, telling GOP central committee members that the party engaged in “petty nonsense” and lacked the discipline to unite during an election in which Republicans were split between allegiance to Gov. Larry Hogan and former President Donald Trump. “For every Trump supporter who tells me I need to condemn Hogan in the name of the party, there is a Hogan supporter who tells me I need to condemn Trump in the name of party unity,” Haire told central committee members last week in an email that he provided to The Baltimore Sun.
