Slotkin admits she is more Liberal than AOC LANSING, Mich., June 9, 2019 – On Friday, in an interview published by the Progressive blog The Michigan Advance, Freshman Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin boasted that her voting record is actually more liberal than that of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. To back up the admission, The Advance pointed to statistics gathered by FiveThirtyEight showing that Ocasio-Cortez has voted with President Trump 10.3% of the time. Elissa Slotkin, a self-proclaimed moderate, has never voted with the president scoring an alarming 0.0%. She takes this extreme position despite the fact that Slotkin’s constituents voted overwhelmingly for Trump in 2016. In the days following the publication of the interview, either The Michigan Advance or Congresswoman Slotkin got cold feet about the admission. Early Monday morning, The Advance removed admission and all accompanying statistics. The explanation was that the story had been updated to “clarify Slotkin’s voting record”, but the use of statistics in the original post did just that. This begs the question, did Congresswoman Slotkin pressure the left-wing blog to change their post because the truth threatens her carefully cultivated moderate image? When asked for comment, Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox stated the following; “This is yet another example of Elissa Slotkin lying about who she really is. First, she lied about where she lived. Then, she lied about standing up to Pelosi. Now,she admits she has been lying about being a moderate. If there has been one consistency with Shady Slotkin, it’s her consistent trouble with the truth”. The following are screenshots of... More >

Cox Statement on John James Senate Announcement LANSING, Mich., June 6, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding John James’ announcement that he will be running for the United States Senate in 2020 against incumbent Gary Peters. “John James is a true patriot who has dedicated his life to the service of our nation. I welcome his entrance into the 2020 U.S. Senate race, and wish him well as he begins his campaign for the Republican nomination.”  Cox continued, “I am confident that next year Michigan will send a leader to the U.S. Senate who will get something done for the people of our state. It’s time for a change from Gary Peters, who has been so ineffective that 43% of Michigan voters don’t even know his name.”     More >

Plagiarism Joe LANSING, Mich., June 5, 2019 –The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding revelations that Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden plagiarized portions of his policy agenda. This is not the first-time Biden has come under attack for plagiarism. Biden was forced to drop out of the 1988 Presidential race when it was found that he had lifted portions of his speeches from other politicians such as Robert Kennedy, Hubert Humphry and Neil Kinnock. While attending law school Biden also used five pages from a legal review without attribution. “Not only are Joe Biden’s ideas wrong, sadly they are also stolen. The people of Michigan want real leadership in the White House, not a recycled Washington politician who is running on recycled ideas. Michigan can’t afford a return to the policies of the Obama/Biden administration. A playbook which Joe Biden would apparently copy verbatim.” More >

Sen. Warren's Apathetic Attempt in Michigan LANSING, Mich., June 4, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Senator Warren's Presidential Campaign stops in Michigan. “Whether it's vouching for a complete government takeover of healthcare, increasing taxes, or pushing the job-killing Green New Deal -- Senator Warren has proved just how out of touch she is with the voters of Michigan. In a last-ditch effort to save her struggling campaign, I find it laughable that the Senator has decided to come and try to pitch radical policies that would cripple Michigan's farming, manufacturing, and auto-industries."

Open Borders Inslee to Campaign in Michigan LANSING, Mich., June 4, 2019 –The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Jay Inslee’s Presidential campaign stop in Michigan today. "As a former federal immigration agent, I am deeply disturbed that Governor Inslee refuses to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. Last month, Inslee signed a bill which makes Washington a sanctuary state and is nothing more than a desperate attempt to pander to the radical left. Their goal of open borders puts American jobs at risk and that’s why President Trump is fighting to solve the crisis at our southern border once and for all.”   More >
