Cox Statement on Whitmer Claim

The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman, Laura Cox, on Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s appearance on WWJ radio in which she claimed that federal government vendors involved in the COVID-19 relief effort "are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan”. However, when pressed later in the day by reporters to substantiate these claims, the governor’s office failed to provide any evidence of federal interference in the Michigan relief effort. 

“Governor Whitmer made an extraordinary claim today which requires extraordinary evidence. If it is found that this claim is untrue and was simply a partisan attack to undermine the administration, I expect for the people of Michigan to hold Gretchen Whitmer accountable for trying to sow fear in a time of national crisis.”
