LANSING, Mich., January 3rd, 2020 – Today, career politician Gary Peters filed paperwork to run for reelection as Michigan’s junior senator. This is the 11th time Peters has sought political office in a career entering its 4th decade.
“After 30 years of running for office, Gary Peters has proven to be nothing but a career politician whose only accomplishment seems to be his ability to successfully file for office.”, said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “During his time in the Senate Gary Peters has failed to stand up for the people of our state on critical issues such as the job killing Green New Deal which would crush Michigan’s manufacturing and agricultural industries. Michigan needs real leadership in the U.S. Senate. We need a leader who will fight for the people of Michigan and their values, not the values of donors and the progressive elite. John James is such a leader.”
