Democrat Circus Comes to Michigan
Gas Tax Gretchen Meets Green Deal Gillibrand While Beto Stumps in Southeast MI

LANSING, Mich., March 18, 2019 –  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox on today’s Presidential campaign visits by Green New Deal supporters Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Beto O’Rourke. Gillibrand will appear with Governor Gretchen Whitmer, while O’Rourke’s will be campaigning in southeastern Michigan.

“Today, the Democrat Presidential circus is coming to Michigan and bringing with it two of its biggest clowns. However, there is nothing funny about Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke’s support for the Green New Deal. This $93 trillion disaster would deal a fatal blow to Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural sectors, and destroy Michigan’s middle class. The Green New Deal, along with “Gas Tax Gretchen’s” 45-Cent fuel tax fiasco, is further proof that the Democrat Party’s only solution is for Michiganders to pay more.”
