EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan Republican officials have chosen the niece of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to replace Terri Lynn Land on the party's national committee.

Ronna Romney McDaniel was elected Saturday morning during a meeting of the 113-member Michigan Republican Party State Central Committee. McDaniel is the daughter of Ronna Romney, who also served on the Republican National Committee.

Land, Michigan's former secretary of state, resigned last month to focus on her run for the U.S. Senate. Her likely Democratic opponent is U.S. Rep. Gary Peters.

Michigan's other RNC elected member is Dave Agema. He's refused to step down after making anti-gay, anti-Muslim comments and despite calls to do so from many top Republicans.

Agema reiterated his intentions to stay put and told MLive.com Saturday he's looking forward to working with McDaniel.
