POLITICO reported Tuesday that Whitmer has just hired her third campaign manager in less than 6 months, which comes just after Whitmer’s campaign was forced to also replace its main spokesperson. Whitmer’s constant staff turnover only adds to her recent challenges, with establishment Democrats and labor unions offering her only reluctant support after spending months actively recruiting alternative candidates to no avail. With only months to go until Michigan Democrats choose their gubernatorial nominee, Whitmer continues to stumble toward the finish line, giving her party plenty of cause for concern for the general election.POLITICO reports:“Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has hired Eric Goldman as her new campaign manager for her Michigan gubernatorial bid, Whitmer's campaign confirmed today…This is Whitmer's third campaign manager…While she's retained front-runner status through the entirety of the Democratic primary for governor, Whitmer's campaign has seen its share of turnover. Besides cycling through multiple campaign managers, Whitmer has also replaced her lead spokesperson, Jen Eyer, with Annie Ellison, a well-regarded Democratic communications operative with roots in California politics.”“This constant turn over, and...

Lansing, MI – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser announced that the Michigan Republican Party is joining “Stop J-Street,” an effort to oppose Anti-Israel candidates across the country, including MI-08 candidate, Democrat Elissa Slotkin.   Elissa Slotkin has been endorsed by J-Street and the anti-Israel lobby and received thousands from J Street PAC, which has been criticized many as “anti-Israel.”  J Street backed the Iran Deal including funding a multimillion dollar television campaign in support, and bragged about spending millions of dollars to defend supporters of the Iran Deal. J Street PAC has vouched their support for Slotkin partially because of her role “in advocating for the passage of the Iran nuclear deal.” While at the Department of Defense, Slotkin played a key role in building support for the Iran Deal. Slotkin has publicly declared her support for the Iran Deal.  “The anti-Israel lobby and J Street are working with Nancy Pelosi and other extremists to knock off pro-Israel conservatives and replace them with candidates who support dangerous anti-Israel policies like the Iran Deal,” said Weiser. “Elissa Slotkin helped create the policies that created the Iran Deal and continuously underestimated the threat of ISIS. We must stop the radical agenda of J Street, Nancy Pelosi, and others who seekto place DC insiders like Elissa Slotkin in Congress to undermine the policies that keep this nation safe.” Slotkin has claimed she had a role in crafting the Iran Deal and has declared her support publicly. Slotkin has also been criticized for policies where she underestimated the threat of ISIS. Slotkin has... More >

LANSING, Mich., February 6, 2018 – Michigan Republican Party Deputy Chief of Staff Sarah Anderson called on the Michigan Democratic Party to ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for her congressional run. It was discovered that Slotkin took her homestead deduction in September 2017 on the only home she owns—a residence in Washington DC that she purchased in 2007 and still owns. Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction despite registering to vote in Michigan in May 2017. Slotkin was required to inform DC in June 2017 about her Michigan registration but ignored it to take advantage of DC residency. “If Democrats are requiring Abdul El-Sayed to get an eligibility review for declaring 2 primary residences, they should ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for pretending to have 2 primary residences,” said Anderson. “Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction on the DC home she owns. She did not disclose the DC home on her personal financial disclosure. Why is Elissa Slotkin hiding her DC home? It’s shady behavior like that which will make Michigan voters question the integrity of DC insider Elissa Sloktin.”According to DC Office of Tax and Revenue records, Slotkin bought her DC home in 2007 and took her homestead deduction in DC throughout 2017. DC law requires the homeowner to be a current DC resident to qualify for the homestead deduction. Elissa Slotkin still owns her DC home but did not disclose it on her personal financial disclosure.

Friend, In the very early hours of this morning, Senator Stabenow chose to put her party over her state and voted to shut down the federal government. This is unacceptable. More than 82,000 Michigan children lost their healthcare when Senator Debbie Stabenow refused to support a compromise spending bill which would have kept the federal government open. In addition to keeping the government operating, the bill included a six-year extension to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) which provides healthcare for children whose families make less than double the federal poverty level. The procedural vote on the bill received a majority in the U.S. Senate, but Democrats, including Senator Stabenow, chose party politics and obstruction over people and the bill did not reach the 60 votes needed to go to a final vote. Call Senator Stabenow at (202) 224-4822 (DC Office), or (517) 203-1760 (Lansing) and demand that she puts Michigan first, and that the federal government gets back to work. More >
