Peters Nullifies The Will of Millions of Michiganders

Freshman Senator Votes To Impeach Duly Elected President On Both Counts

LANSING, Mich., February 5, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox after freshman Senator Gary Peters voted to convict President Trump:

"Senator Peters voting to impeach President Trump should come as no surprise to anyone, considering he votes with Chuck Schumer 95% of the time. His choice is the most disappointing for the people of our state, because the career politician put partisanship ahead of the people he was elected to represent.” said Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, "I am deeply disgusted that Senator Peters violated the will of millions of Michigan voters who duly elected President Trump in 2016. This is truly the end of the line for Gary Peters."
