GRAND HAVEN (WKZO) -- Dave Agema says he won’t resign his Republican Party post.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Michigan GOP Chairman Bobby Schostak have now joined five Michigan Congressman, the Attorney general and a number of other party members calling for the resignation of National Committeeman Dave Agema.

Friday, Michigan’s other National Committee Member, Terry Lynn Land also issued a statement calling for his resignation “for the good of the party”.

Agema says he is sorry but he isn’t going anywhere. In a press release on his blog site, he apologized for reprinting a piece that Muslims found offensive but he isn’t taking back any of the comments about gays.

At the end of his statement, he says he plans to remain a proud member of the National Republican Committee.

Republicans who support Agema reportedly are planning to picket Republican Headquarters in Lansing on Monday.
