Cox Statement On Governor Whitmer Skirting Johnson Comments

LANSING, Mich., December 10, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding Governor Whitmer’s failure to condemn harmful comments made by Representative Cynthia A. Johnson.

“I am disappointed that Governor Whitmer did not have the courage to come out and condemn Representative Johnson for her comments inciting violence, when asked about them in today’s COVID press conference. Instead of making excuses for Representative Johnson, the Governor should join the bipartisan voices, including Attorney General Dana Nessel, in denouncing Representative Johnson for making clear threats of violence towards political opponents. This behavior has no place in our society.”
