MRP Statement on Redistricting Stay LANSING, Mich., May 24, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding the US Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay in the Michigan Redistricting Lawsuit. “The Michigan redistricting lawsuit is simply a desperate attempt by partisan Democrats to redraw our state’s legislative lines two years early. Their political games would disenfranchise Michigan voters and force early elections. I applaud the United State Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay in the case. This will allow our legislature to continue focusing on getting things done for the people of Michigan, instead of unnecessary partisan battles over political maps.”    More >

Dana’s Dangerous Partisan Precedent

Dana’s Dangerous Partisan Precedent LANSING, Mich., May 22, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s ruling which calls into question the constitutionality of Public Act 608 of 2018. The act set forth rules for the gathering of State petitions. Previously, Nessel has used the same process to strike down other laws enacted by Republicans. “Yet again, Dana Nessel has decided to throw out a law she doesn’t support on purely partisan grounds, and to help Democrats gain an advantage under our State’s election laws.  The job of the Michigan Attorney General is to enforce Michigan’s laws, not create them. Dana Nessel has established a dangerous precedent which undermines the elected representatives of our state, and gives the Attorney General’s office almost unlimited power. This is not what government for the people looks like, and Michigan voters should be disgusted.”    More >

Americans are excited about our booming economy, and know that they have President Trump to thank. The President promised Michiganders he would fight to put them back to work and his effort have resulted in more jobs, higher pay and billions in new investment within our state. Michiganders remember the economic chaos of the Obama/Biden years and we are not going back."   More >

MRP calls on Democrats to Censure Tlaib LANSING, Mich., May 12, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s recent appearance on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery" in which the congresswoman stated, “There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports, and, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time.” “Anti-Semitism and hate have no place in civilized discourse. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats have failed our nation by repeatedly ignoring despicable comments from members of their caucus. This dereliction of duty is unacceptable. It’s time to hold Rashida Tlaib accountable by censuring the Congresswoman for her recent comments. Anything less is a sign that anti-Semitism is acceptable within today’s Democrat Party.” More >
