Cox Statement on Gary Peters Opposing Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation

LANSING, Mich., October 27, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding U.S. Senator Gary Peters’ vote against the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett:


“Gary Peters made yet another partisan vote in a Senate career defined by voting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer 95% of the time, despite the fact that Michigan families sent him there to stand up for them. Worse yet, Peters chose to play politics instead of supporting an incredibly well-qualified woman for the United States Supreme Court. The only thing Peters confirmed tonight was his commitment to a radical progressive policy agenda that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unmasked when she said Peters is the key to “a memorable shift from just a flatline of this idea of bipartisanship”.
