Cox Statement on Whitmer Kidnapping Plot

LANSING, Mich., October 8, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox regarding today’s news that the FBI foiled a plot to overthrow our government and kidnap Governor Whitmer.

“I would like to thank the hard-working men and women of the FBI and state and local law enforcement who stopped this attack before it could happen, and I am grateful that no government officials, their families or Michigan citizens were harmed. We live in a nation where we settle our political disagreements at the ballot box, not through violence, and any attempt to do otherwise is an attack on our Constitution, our values, and our American way of life.”
