MIGOP Reaches Over 1 Million Voters

LANSING, Mich., March 24, 2020 – This weekend, during the GOP’s National Day of Action, the Michigan Republican Party (MIGOP) surpassed 1 million voter contacts. MIGOP’s millionth contact is four months ahead of the record-setting pace the party set in 2018 when 1 million voters were reached by late July. The Michigan Republican Party’s comprehensive ground game reaches extensively across Michigan. Not only has MIGOP contacted over 1 million voters, we have also activated and trained thousands of volunteers across the state as we continually grow our grassroots army. During the coronavirus pandemic, the Michigan Republican Party has shifted entirely to digital and virtual efforts to ensure the health and well-being of staff, grassroots leaders, volunteers and voters. This weekend’s efforts focused around conducting trainings in a virtual setting and helping set up volunteers with call-from-home technology. “I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our volunteers for their dedication to our party in light of the ongoing circumstances. Michiganders know that they are far better off today, than they were 4 years ago – and it’s motivating them to get out and support our President.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “We will continue full-steam ahead in mobilizing voters for President Trump and Republicans up and down the ticket, thanks to the unprecedented groundwork we’ve laid in the past year.” More >

Democrats Put Partisan Politics Ahead of Coronavirus Aid

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – As Michigan and the nation continue to face one of the worst health crises in United States history, Democrats continue to play partisan politics. CNN reported Monday that the Democrat Super PAC, Priorities USA, has launched a $6 million ad campaign attacking President Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic. This comes on the heels of Senate Majority PAC, with ties to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Gary Peters, launching false attack ads on Republican senate candidate John James’ healthcare position. Amidst the coronavirus crisis Democrats - including Michigan's Gary Peters - blocked a $1.8 trillion economic stabilization package for the second time Monday afternoon, in an attempt to get unreasonable concessions like solar power tax credits and a study of global warming.  "The American people desperately need aid in these trying times, yet Democrats can’t overcome their disdain for the president and refuse to work together to solve this crisis." said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. "Now is the time for results, not partisan politics. Democrats need to drop the negative ads and unrealistic policy objectives and work with Republicans to get the American people the relief they deserve." More >

Cox Statement on Peters’ Obstruction

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Michigan Senator Gary Peters’ decision to join with Democrats for the second time in 24 hours to deny cloture on a bi-partisan COVID-19 stimulus aid package. This package would have provided Michigan families with badly needed relief during the unfolding crisis.  “Yet again, Gary Peters has chosen to put the interests of his party over the people of Michigan. Across our state, millions of Michiganders face uncertainty about their economic future. People are being laid off and small businesses face closing. This aid package addresses all those issues and more. The time for action is now and Gary Peters' obstruction must end.” More >

Whitmer’s National Audition Continues

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – On Sunday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer continued her circuit on national television, and continued to criticize the federal government instead of focusing on her home state during one of the worst health crises in Michigan’s history. Over the last few weeks, speculation has grown that Governor Whitmer is on Joe Biden’s short list for the vice presidential spot on his ticket. Whitmer, who currently serves as a Biden Campaign National Co-Chair, has undermined President Trump almost every day over the last week on national television. (ABC News, This Week) (Los Angeles Times, accessed 3-23-2020) (Fox News Channel, Fox News Sunday) “At a time when Michigan needs Gretchen Whitmer to lead, she is spending too much of her time seeking the national spotlight.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “As governor, Gretchen Whitmer needs to realize that her responsibilities are to the people of Michigan, not as a spokesperson for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.” More >

Peters Votes Against COVID Aid Package

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – On Sunday, Michigan Senator Gary Peters joined with fellow Democrats to deny cloture on a COVID-19 stimulus aid package which would have provided Michigan families with badly needed relief during the unfolding crisis. The package would have guaranteed thousands of dollars to citizens based on income, as well as family size, to offset the recent hardships brought on by the coronavirus and distancing efforts to combat its spread. Also included in the package was an increase in unemployment benefits, offered as a compromise to Democrats. In the immediate aftermath of the filibuster, stock futures cratered falling 4%. “Tens of thousands of Michiganders now find themselves out of work due to this crisis, and while Republicans work to get them the aid they desperately need, Gary Peters and the Democrats are instead engaging in partisan posturing.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “The time has come for Gary Peters to stand up to his party, or stand aside and give Michigan an actual voice in the Senate.”   More >
