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.

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 >

ICYMI: Slotkin's Discrepancies In case you missed it, the Washington Free Beacon reported today that there is a discrepancy in resumes Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin used, which show she held vastly different positions early in her career. One resume shows she worked for "a professional body representing the Palestinian minority in Israel in all matters related to education." While the other shows her working as "a grant writer for Isha L'Isha (Women to Women), which describes itself as "the oldest grassroots feminist organization in Israel and one of the leading voices of women's rights in the country." Why aren’t these resumes the same and what is Elissa Slotkin hiding? Discrepancy In Slotkin’s Resumes On Israeli-Palestinian Work Entries show work for both Palestinian and Israeli groups during Second Intifada Two resumes from Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D., Mich.) offer different accounts of an early point in her career, raising questions about which version is most accurate and if there are political reasons why the two CVs do not match exactly. The discrepancy is also drawing some criticism from pro-Israel quarters. When the Michigan Democrat was being considered for assistant secretary of state in 2012, a resume she submitted as part of her application claimed that circa 2000-2001 she had served as a grant writer for the Follow-Up Committee on Arab Education (FUCAE). That group's website says it "is a professional body representing the Palestinian minority in Israel in all matters related to education." However, her current work history on her LinkedIn profile for the same time... More >

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 >

CBS News: Americans feel good about economy and give Trump credit LANSING, Mich., May 22, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding a new CBS News Poll which shows that the vast majority of Americans (71%) feel the “condition of U.S. economy is good”. The poll also showed that 85% of those surveyed give President Trump full or partial credit for the U.S. economies’ improved performance. “The CBS News headline speaks for itself. 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 >

I applaud the Michigan House Republican Caucus for removing Larry Inman, who is accused of violating this trust.”    More >
