Michigan Republican Party announces new political director

Will lead aggressive effort to reorganize party ahead of 2014 cycle

LANSING, Mich., March 18, 2013 – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak, today announced that the Michigan Republican Party has hired Michael Bir [beer] as the political director for the party. Bir, formerly the Ohio Victory Director, joins the Michigan Republican Party immediately and will be responsible for leading the political department including enacting an aggressive reorganization of the political and coalitions operations as part of Schostak’s plan to strengthen the party and empower the grassroots, in preparation for the 2014 election cycle.

“Michael Bir is a talented political operative who brings a wealth of experience to the Michigan Republican Party, most of all his ability to develop, manage and execute a grassroots-focused statewide political operation,” said Schostak. “I look forward to Michael expanding the Michigan Republican Party’s political department and implementing our reorganization plan that includes regionalizing the party in order to allow us to organize every precinct, in every county, and in every corner of the state.”

Beginning in 2010, Bir served as the Ohio Victory Director for the Republican National Committee and continued that role during the 2012 cycle, where he oversaw the recruitment of more than 140 victory employees, a budget of more than $3 million that resulted in more than 8.4 million voter contacts. His responsibilities also included coordinating the in-state campaign activities of the presidential, U.S. Senate, congressional, state legislature and down ballot campaigns.

“I’m excited to join the Michigan Republican Party and immediately go to work fighting to defend Michigan’s comeback by fundamentally redeveloping the party’s political department, creating a bottom-up organization that ensures we organize every precinct, empower every grassroots activist and engage every coalition throughout Michigan,” said Bir.

Bir is an Ohio native and graduate of Ohio University who began his political career as a volunteer, later as field staff for a state representative campaign before managing a state senate campaign.
