LANSING (WKZO) -- The calls for the ouster of Michigan Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema are getting louder once again.

Congressmen Fred Upton of St. Joseph and Justin Amash of Grand Rapids are now calling for Agema to resign for anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments in the past two months, as does former National Committeewoman Betsy DeVos.  State Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville is weighing in, saying he doesn't want a resignation, but instead wants a recall to push Agema out.

The Republican National Committee winter meeting started Wednesday, and DeVos has asked RNC chairman Reince Preibus to find a way to remove Agema.
