Chaos Continues to Riddle Michigan Secretary of State

LANSING, Mich., February 12, 2020 – Last Friday, MIRS reported on conflicts erupting at local Michigan Secretary of State (SOS) branches, due to “customers getting upset when they couldn't complete their branch office business”. A FOIA of the SOS showed over 50 “critical incident” reports have been filed with the governor’s office over the last year. The most of any state agency in 2019. The incident reports went as far as customers yelling at each other and clerks, destroying offices, throwing food, threats of physical violence, and assaults on state employees. Despite Governor Whitmer’s Executive Directive offering a more open line of communication for state employees to report incidents to her office, MIRS reported that workers “didn't bother reporting incidents because they didn't think there would be any follow-up” from the Secretary of State. In Tuesday’s MIRS “Capitol Capsule”, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson even conceded that branch security is a “significant issue”. The eye-opening report comes on the heels of high senior staff turnover in Benson’s office. Benson’s Chief Deputy, Chief of Staff, Communications Director, Deputy Communications Director and Elections Chief have all departed within the last year. Michigan Republican Party Chairman, Laura Cox, said the incidents are especially troubling, considering Benson’s position as one of the state’s top executives. “The reports about the chaos happening at Secretary of State branches under Jocelyn Benson’s watch is incredibly troubling. How can Benson be trusted to ensure the integrity of Michigan’s elections, when she can’t ensure her own offices run smoothly?” Michigan Republican Party Chairman... More >

LANSING, Mich., February 12, 2020 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Michigan on Tuesday, February 25: "Under the leadership of President Trump and Vice President Pence, Michiganders keep notching countless victories as a result of an America First agenda. From fully funding the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to passing the historic USMCA - which is rapidly bringing manufacturing jobs back to our state - the Trump-Pence Administration is working overtime for Michigan. I look forward to welcoming Vice President Pence back to Michigan, and laying the groundwork to four more years of winning!" More >

MIGOP Statement on New Hampshire Presidential Primary

LANSING, Mich., February 11, 2020 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding tonight’s results of the New Hampshire Democrat Primary:  "Tonight’s New Hampshire result is further proof that the Democrat party is completely out of touch with the American people. Their toxic, top-down tax and spend policies would strap our country with crippling debt, and kill the American Dream as we know it. From fully funding the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, to passing massive tax relief which has saved Michiganders an average $1,400 per year, the hardworking people of our state know Trump is fighting for them in Washington. I look forward to spending the next nine months working tirelessly for our president and his America First agenda." More >

Hoadley Rubs Elbows with Radical Coastal Elites – Again.

Hoadley Headlines New York and San Francisco Left-Wing Fundraisers LANSING, Mich., February 10, 2020 – Following his endorsement from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee - who has supported radical candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar - Jon Hoadley is set to headline yet another event with the same out-of-state coastal progressives at a San Francisco fundraiser. This comes just weeks after the State Representative jetted off to New York to join his ultra-wealthy special interest donors funding his campaign. Hoadley, who has also been endorsed by the Planned Parenthood PAC and Congressional Progressive Caucus, is now scheduled to accompany former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm for another private fundraiser in San Francisco, California. Michigan Republican Party Chairman said the fundraisers are no surprise, but especially troubling with the slate of endorsements Hoadley has received. “Instead of focusing on his constituents of the 60th District, or the hardworking people of Southwest Michigan, Jon Hoadley has decided to rub elbows with the progressive coastal elite.” said Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “It’s clear that Jon Hoadley feels more at home in California and New York and will pave over the people of Michigan’s 6th congressional district to support his donors’ radical progressive agenda.” Subsequent to his endorsement from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Hoadley has yet to make his intentions clear on whether he will support fellow progressive Elizabeth Warren or another candidate in the 2020 Democrat Presidential Primary.

Peters Nullifies The Will of Millions of Michiganders

Freshman Senator Votes To Impeach Duly Elected President On Both Counts LANSING, Mich., February 5, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox after freshman Senator Gary Peters voted to convict President Trump: "Senator Peters voting to impeach President Trump should come as no surprise to anyone, considering he votes with Chuck Schumer 95% of the time. His choice is the most disappointing for the people of our state, because the career politician put partisanship ahead of the people he was elected to represent.” said Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, "I am deeply disgusted that Senator Peters violated the will of millions of Michigan voters who duly elected President Trump in 2016. This is truly the end of the line for Gary Peters." More >
