Chairman Cox: "The USMCA is a win for Michiganders"

LANSING, Mich., January 30, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox, regarding President Trump's visit to Michigan today, to celebrate the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The agreement is projected to add $68.2 billion of investment into our economy, and create 176,000 jobs – much of which is expected to be concentrated in Michigan.  "Thanks to the bold leadership of President Trump and Congressional Republicans, the USMCA is now a reality. This renewed agreement brings our trade relationship with Mexico and Canada into the 21st Century. For far too long, our workers, farmers and manufacturers here in Michigan have been unfairly taken advantage of by NAFTA's outdated terms. By leveling the playing field for our producers, the president has reaffirmed his support for the people of Michigan. Simply put, the USMCA is a win for Michiganders." More >

MIGOP Response to Governor Whitmer’s 2020 State of the State Address

LANSING, Mich., January 29, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement from Chairman Laura Cox regarding tonight’s State of the State address by Governor Gretchen Whitmer: “Tonight’s address is yet another reminder of Gretchen Whitmer's failed first year as governor, and even more of the same empty promises for the future. Instead of committing to work with Republicans to find commonsense solutions to Michigan’s problems, Governor Whitmer made it clear that she’ll go it alone without the legislature if they don’t agree with her tax and spend policies." said Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, "From her support for impeachment and Medicare-for-all, and her unrealistic roads proposal that raises taxes on hardworking Michiganders – Whitmer has proved that she is no different than the same out-of-touch liberal Democrats determined to sabotage the American dream."

Is Gary Peters Brave Enough to Stand Up to His Party?

LANSING, Mich., January 29, 2020 – On Tuesday, Roll Call released its “Key Votes 2019”, highlighting Senator Peters’ steadfast loyalty to Democrat leadership. According to the report, Peters joined his party on all 10 of the votes that CQ Roll Call identified as "key votes" for 2019, giving him a 100% score for "Party Unity on Key Votes.”  Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox said the news is especially troubling given the upcoming impeachment vote in the Senate. “Is Gary Peters brave enough to stand up to his own party on a key vote like impeachment? Or will he be just another rubber stamp on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer's hyper-partisan agenda?” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, "Our state deserves a senator that respects the will of millions of Michigan voters, protects our state’s values and goes to Washington to solve problems, not play party politics. Gary Peters has proven he is unable to do the job.” Most recently, Peters indicated to the press that he sided with Democrats’ call to drag out impeachment proceedings with additional witnesses. The Democrats’ call for extra witnesses is simply an attempt to extend to the House’s partisan impeachment trial into the Senate, wasting more time and taxpayer dollars. The Michigan Senate race is projected to be “competitive” by Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzalez. According to Morning Consult, Peters currently remains the least known member of the Senate, with 34 percent of Michigan voters saying they don’t know who he is or have no opinion of him. On top of that, another 29 percent of voters disapprove of the job he is doing. Since November, Democrats have poured over $2 million dollars into the... More >

Renewed trade agreements like the USMCA and Phase One Trade Deal with China, bust open the door for our producers to compete and win globally, and lends a hand to the revitalization of the industries vital to our state's success. We look forward to welcoming the president back to Michigan to celebrate what these monumental trade deals mean for our state.” More >

MIGOP Statement on Democrat SOTU Response Team

LANSING, Mich., January 24, 2020 – The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement in response to the announcement that Governor Gretchen Whitmer will be joining Texas Representative Veronica Escobar to deliver the Democrat response to President Trump's State of the Union Address. "Governor Whitmer has failed to prove herself to Michiganders. From our crumbling roads she promised to fix, to holding Michigan's most vulnerable communities hostage for a massive gas tax, it is only fitting that she is joining in on the same D.C. parlor games the people of our state resent.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman, Laura Cox. Cox continued, "The governor broke every promise she made on the campaign trail. She’s had ample time to make a difference for our state, but her past year in office has been nothing more than photo-op's and sound bites. Ultimately, Gretchen Whitmer's decision to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi makes it that much easier to give our state a new governor in 2022." More >
