In case you missed it: on Sunday the Detroit Free Press reported that Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel has already broken her promise to defend the women of Michigan.  Nessel has appointed her friend Michael Sareini as a key advisor on her transition team. Sareini is a Wayne County Democrat insider who was convicted of domestic violence and accused of assault and harassment by three family members. In 2000, a judge issued a Personal Protection Order against Sareini when his ex-wife testified that the Dearborn city councilman had grabbed her by the throat and knocked her to the ground in a fit of rage.  In 2001, Sareini was actually sentenced for domestic violence.  Nessel’s defense of the appointment? “It is neither fair nor appropriate to judge Mike or anyone else based on unsustained {sic} allegations made nearly 20 years ago.” Funny, Nessel didn’t think that last fall when she said Justice Brent Kavanaugh lacked “the moral fitness we should demand of anyone who aims to sit on our nation’s highest court” based on accusations brought up 30 years later without any complaint at the time of the alleged event, without evidence or substantiation. Sareini, however, was convicted. On the eve of her being sworn in as our state’s top cop, it is clear: whether you are an exploited teen, a child who is the victim of a predator, or a woman in need, you can only count on Dana Nessel if she thinks it benefits her. The rest of Michigan's women... More >

MRP Office in Traverse City Temporarily Closed Due to Bomb Threat LANSING, Mich., October 31, 2018 – This afternoon, the Michigan Republican Party Office in Traverse City was shut down temporarily after an unidentified individual entered the office and threatened to blow up the facility. After the threat, the individual fled. The Grand Traverse Sheriff’s Department rapidly responded and are currently sweeping the facility. Please see the statement from MRP Chief of Staff Colleen Pero: “This is the second time in the past week that an MRP office has been threated or vandalized. Democrats are waking up to the fact that their dreams of a blue wave are quickly evaporating, and now extremist activists are responding with intimidation and threats of violence. We thank the Grand Traverse Sheriff’s Department for their quick response and all that they are doing to ensure the safety of our employees and volunteers.” Early last Friday the Michigan Republican Party Headquarters in Lansing was vandalized by two unknown individuals and Republican lawn signs across the state are also being defaced and stolen.   More >

Hillary Clinton has apparently found Michigan. Clinton was notorious for ignoring our great state in the 2016 election. As a matter of fact, she has blown off Michigan for years. Now, she seems to think Michiganders will listen to her, and has endorsed Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Gretchen Whitmer.  Hillary Clinton, in a recent interview with CNN, said, "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That's why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that's when civility can start again." She has also stated the time for civility is over.  Clinton stated this week, "I'd like to be President." This would be her third run. In 2008, Clinton lost the primary to Barack Obama, rejected by her own party. And, as we all know, in 2016 lost the General Election to Donald Trump. Michigan voters have continuously rejected everything Hillary Clinton stands for, and now she wants us to back her support of Gretchen Whitmer? With the election only a week away, it is time for Michiganders to send Hillary another clear message: we rejected her in 2016, let's do it again in 2018! The race for Michigan's next governor is tightening with just days before the election. The momentum is clearly on the side of the Republicans, and is feeling much like to 2016 cycle when Michiganders turned their backs on Clinton and made their voices heard.  More >

The Resistance Comes to Michigan When Democrats go low, Republicans go to the polls. Friday morning, we filed a vandalism report with Lansing Police after hundreds of dollars of damage was done to the MIGOP Party headquarters. This latest incident caps off a week of harassment by the Michigan Democrat Party (MDP) and their supporters against Michigan Republicans. This week, MDP released an ad that displayed the social security numbers, in violation of the law, of Republican House candidate Christine Barnes and her ex-husband in an ad seen by at least 100,000 people, putting them both at risk for identity fraud. On Wednesday, Mark Burton, a senior advisor for Gretchen Whitmer’s gubernatorial campaign, tweeted an anti-Semitic “joke” at Stu Sandler, a Jewish Republican consultant, as well John James, an African American U.S. Senate Candidate and Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette, implying that they were Nazis.  Congressman Tim Walberg’s campaign had numerous 4x4 yard signs stolen from homes across the 7thCongressional District. To cap off the week, yesterday MIGOP employees arrived at headquarters to discover that our place of work had been vandalized with graffiti. The ‘Blue Wave’ is rapidly evaporating and the resistance seems to be in full panic mode, resorting to mob tactics. They will leak a candidate’s social security number, call our candidates and consultants Nazis, and spray paint our headquarters in an attempt to intimidate our staff. We will not be intimidated.  We will not back down.  We will continue to take our message of results not resistance... More >

Democrats Stoop to New Low Michigan Democrats Release Christine Barnes’ Social Security Number in Ad LANSING, Mich., October 23, 2018 – The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) is calling upon Michigan Democrats to immediately cease and desist running an ad in the 71st House district in which the Michigan Democrat Party (MDP) revealed the Social Security numbers of State House candidate Christine Barnes and her former husband in violation of state and possibly federal law. In addition to disclosing Ms. Barnes’ full Social Security number in the ad, MDP also featured documents in a public Dropbox which would allow criminals to piece together Ms. Barnes’ full Social Security number. These actions have put Barnes and her former husband at risk for identity theft and fraud. “This is despicable,” said Ron Weiser, Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. Weiser continued, “Christine Barnes is running for office to improve the lives of her fellow citizens, and the Michigan Democrat Party used all its resources to try to destroy hers. By releasing her Social Security number, they have broken the law and put Barnes’identity and credit at risk. I call upon MDP to immediately pull this ad and shut down the public Dropbox. Further,MDP owes Ms. Barnes an immediate apology.” Ms. Barnes has filed a police report with the Michigan State Police. Under Michigan law MDP employees face the following criminal penalties for violation of the Michigan Social Security Act: Those who publicly display with knowledge that the person's conduct violates this act is...
