Cox Statement on Sterling Heights Mayor Support of Biden

LANSING, Mich., March 11, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding yesterday’s announcement by Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor that he would be supporting Democrat Joe Biden for President. “It’s no shock that Mike Taylor is supporting Joe Biden for President, after all he is not really a Republican. No fiscally-minded conservative would ever spend $340,000 of taxpayer money on a modern art ‘landmark’ which has been compared to a ‘golden butthole’. Clearly, Mike Taylor is nothing more than a political opportunist. Just two months ago, Taylor accepted an invitation to the White House and praised thePresident. He then praised Mayor Pete. Then praised Michael Bloomberg.” “The fact is, Joe Biden spent the last 30 years voting for trade deals which cost Michigan nearly 170,000 manufacturing jobs. Under President Trump’s leadership, 20,000 manufacturing jobs have moved back to our state and over 100,000 jobs have been created overall. Donald Trump’s America First message was the reason Macomb County flipped in 2016, and the promises he’s kept are the reason why it will go for him again in 2020.  Clearly, it takes one ‘golden butthole’ to know another. ”    More >

Does Peters Support Biden’s Outbursts?

As blue-collar workers are set to, once again, be one of Michigan’s most vital electorates in this November’s Presidential election – they also have become the latest target of former Vice President Joe Biden’s public aggressions. Before winning yesterday’s Democrat Presidential Primary in Michigan, Joe Biden told a Detroit worker he was “full of s***” and going as far as to say he would “slap him in the face.” This morning, in an interview with Fox & Friends, the worker who found himself at the receiving end of Biden’s subversive threats called the behavior “disturbing”, saying that “he kind of just went off the deep end.” Despite Michigan becoming the center of the political universe yesterday, the state’s junior senator has been silent on the topic – leaving many to wonder where he stands on Biden’s public outbursts with supporters. Yet, Gary Peters failure to stand up to party leadership is nothing new. Just this week, Peters opted to stall subpoenas of the Ukrainian oil and gas firm, Burisma, that has been connected to the former Vice President and his son, Hunter Biden. “As to be expected, Senator Gary Peters is no different than the ranks of the status-quo Democrat leadership he seeks to protect.” said Michigan Republican Party Co-Chair, Terry Bowman. Bowman continued, “As a 24-year UAW-Ford autoworker, I can tell you firsthand how fed up American workers are with the Democrats. They use us for our votes and forget us until their elections roll around again. Peters continues... More >

Cox Statement on Michigan Democrat Primary Results

LANSING, Mich., March 10, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding tonight’s Democrat Presidential Primary results. “It’s obvious Gretchen Whitmer has Washington ambitions, and in ‘a slap in the face’ to Michigan voters she put her thumb firmly on the scale for Joe Biden who showed today he lacks the temperament to be president. In the end, it doesn’t matter who emerges from their circus of a primary, President Trump’s record of success will carry him to victory here in Michigan, and across our nation this November.”   More >

What’s the Real Delay Jocelyn?

LANSING, Mich., March 10, 2020 – According to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, tonight’s voting results could take a full day to be processed due to an increase in absentee ballots. However, absentee ballot turnout for the Michigan Presidential Primary is on track to be less than either the 2016 or 2018 General Elections, which were both counted the night of the election. This begs the question, is Jocelyn Benson playing politics with Michigan’s voting results to get her election rule changes passed? “It’s hard to understand why it would take until Wednesday to count all the absentee ballots when absentee turnout is less than the last two General Elections.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “Those elections were called the same day, yet Jocelyn Benson claims it can’t be done this time. Why? Is it because she didn’t have clerks properly prepared, or is this an intentional delay so she can push more of her radical voting law changes? Regardless one thing is abundantly clear - whether it’s waiting at Benson’s branch offices, or waiting on voting results…don’t expect Jocelyn Benson to get the job done on time.” More >
