MIGOP Statement on Bernie Sanders Withdrawal from Democrat Primary

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Bernie Sanders’ withdrawal from the 2020 Presidential Race: “With Bernie Sanders' decision to drop out of the 2020 Presidential Primary, Democrats are left with their weakest nominee for president since Walter Mondale.

President Trump is Providing Support to America’s Healthcare Providers

Throughout the course of the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump and his administration have ensured that America’s healthcare providers have all the resources necessary as they fight this virus on the front lines. “I would like to thank our medical professionals who are on the frontlines of the fight against this invisible enemy, and President Trump and his administration for giving them the tools they need to win that fight.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “The president has kept his promise to spare no resource in this fight and the whole-of-government approach is working to get the American people the aid they need.” The President has extended the White House and CDC guidelines to slow the spread until April 30.   President Trump signed legislation providing $100 billion for our nation’s healthcare providers, including hospitals on the frontlines of this outbreak.  The President took action so his Administration could waive certain laws and regulations in order to give healthcare providers maximum flexibility.  CMS issued regulatory changes to help increase hospital capacity, expand the healthcare workforce, and cut paperwork so doctors can focus on patients. The Administration lifted HIPAA penalties to enable healthcare providers to expand telehealth access for patients.  Over 1.8 million tests have been conducted nationwide. No nation has developed a more robust testing capacity. 1,200 Abbott Machines have been shipped to hospitals nationwide and 500 more are being produced weekly. The Army Corps of Engineers is building 22 field hospitals and alternate care sites in 18 states.... More >

Peters False Attacks Continue During Pandemic

Today, Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox called on Senator Gary Peters to demand that his allies halt the airing of several false ads that have been running on Michigan airwaves during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the ads, Michigan residents with deep ties to the Michigan Democrat Party, Gary Peters, and other progressive special interest groups make several blatantly false climes about John James and his stances on healthcare. Claims that are heightened in the publics' mind due to Michiganders continuing concerns about the ongoing pandemic.  The five Democrat activists in the ad, all with ties to Democrat causes and Gary Peters, are Lee Anzicek, Terry Gannon, Carole Gannon, and Wally Niezguski. These individuals have all given to Democrat and liberal causes, according to FEC records. Sheron Williams, who is also in the ad, participated in a Gary Peters campaign event and is pictured with Peters at that event.  “While Michiganders continue to suffer the health and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gary Peters and his allies continue to attack combat veteran John James with a false healthcare narrative built on lies,” said Cox. “If Gary Peters had any integrity, he would call for the withdrawal of those false ads immediately and stop trying to politicize this pandemic.” This is not the first time Peters has been called into question about trying to politicize the COVID-19 pandemic. On Sunday, the Michigan Republican Party pointed to a Peters campaign website which was touted as a resource on COVID-19, but... More >
