The Resistance Comes to Michigan When Democrats go low, Republicans go to the polls. Friday morning, we filed a vandalism report with Lansing Police after hundreds of dollars of damage was done to the MIGOP Party headquarters. This latest incident caps off a week of harassment by the Michigan Democrat Party (MDP) and their supporters against Michigan Republicans. This week, MDP released an ad that displayed the social security numbers, in violation of the law, of Republican House candidate Christine Barnes and her ex-husband in an ad seen by at least 100,000 people, putting them both at risk for identity fraud. On Wednesday, Mark Burton, a senior advisor for Gretchen Whitmer’s gubernatorial campaign, tweeted an anti-Semitic “joke” at Stu Sandler, a Jewish Republican consultant, as well John James, an African American U.S. Senate Candidate and Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette, implying that they were Nazis.  Congressman Tim Walberg’s campaign had numerous 4x4 yard signs stolen from homes across the 7thCongressional District. To cap off the week, yesterday MIGOP employees arrived at headquarters to discover that our place of work had been vandalized with graffiti. The ‘Blue Wave’ is rapidly evaporating and the resistance seems to be in full panic mode, resorting to mob tactics. They will leak a candidate’s social security number, call our candidates and consultants Nazis, and spray paint our headquarters in an attempt to intimidate our staff. We will not be intimidated.  We will not back down.  We will continue to take our message of results not resistance... More >

Democrats Stoop to New Low Michigan Democrats Release Christine Barnes’ Social Security Number in Ad LANSING, Mich., October 23, 2018 – The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) is calling upon Michigan Democrats to immediately cease and desist running an ad in the 71st House district in which the Michigan Democrat Party (MDP) revealed the Social Security numbers of State House candidate Christine Barnes and her former husband in violation of state and possibly federal law. In addition to disclosing Ms. Barnes’ full Social Security number in the ad, MDP also featured documents in a public Dropbox which would allow criminals to piece together Ms. Barnes’ full Social Security number. These actions have put Barnes and her former husband at risk for identity theft and fraud. “This is despicable,” said Ron Weiser, Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. Weiser continued, “Christine Barnes is running for office to improve the lives of her fellow citizens, and the Michigan Democrat Party used all its resources to try to destroy hers. By releasing her Social Security number, they have broken the law and put Barnes’identity and credit at risk. I call upon MDP to immediately pull this ad and shut down the public Dropbox. Further,MDP owes Ms. Barnes an immediate apology.” Ms. Barnes has filed a police report with the Michigan State Police. Under Michigan law MDP employees face the following criminal penalties for violation of the Michigan Social Security Act: Those who publicly display with knowledge that the person's conduct violates this act is...

In case you missed it: Today the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) dumped $250,000 into the Proposition 2 support group “Voters Not Politicians,” further confirmation that Proposition 2 is nothing more than a cheap ploy by Democrats to gerrymander Michigan’s Constitution. The Democrats want to make Michigan’s electoral districts less about our communities and more about identity politics.Remember to tell your friends, family, and neighbors, to vote ‘NO’ on Proposition 2 this November. It’s a scam.Here is the press release from NRDC sent to Michigan media today:NDRC Affiliate Invests in Michigan Redistricting Reform Effort Washington, D.C. – Today, the National Redistricting Action Fund, the 501(c)(4) affiliate of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), is announcing a $250,000 investment in Voters Not Politicians, the group behind a grassroots movement to create an independent citizens redistricting commission in Michigan. The citizens of Michigan will have the opportunity to vote on the reform this November. Eric H. Holder, Jr., 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chair of the NDRC, released the following statement: “In Michigan, the current electoral system is unfair and is so rigged that politicians can now pick their voters, instead of allowing citizens to choose their representatives. Our governments are not supposed to work this way. This partisan gerrymandering leads to dysfunction, polarization, and the legitimate belief held by average Americans that, for them, our political system just does not work. Regardless of party affiliation, that’s not good for our democracy. Maps that are drawn by a truly... More >

Saying you support Israel is not enough: Hamas supporter Gilchrist must go! LANSING, Mich., September 5, 2018 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser regarding tweets made by Democrat Lt. Governor candidate Garlin Gilchrist II in which Gilchrist legitimized the Palestinian Terrorist group Hamas. Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department since 1997. Hamas is an anti-Semitic Iranian-backed terrorist group responsible for the death of more than two dozen Americans whose stated purpose is the total destruction of Israel: “The Iranian funded terrorist group known as Hamas has consistently been one of the greatest hurdles to Middle Eastern peace. The fact that Garlin Gilchrist II defended a terrorist organization that intentionally targets innocent women and children and that has killed more than two dozen American citizens disqualifies him from being our state’s next Lt. Governor. Gilchrist called Hamas ‘legitimate’ and blamed his own nation, the United States, for Hamas’ electoral success. Let me be clear: Hamas is not a political party that simply has an ‘extremist wing,’ as Gilchrist states. It is a terrorist organization that traffics in death and is funded by the enemies of the United States. The fact that these tweets escaped Gretchen Whitmer shows that she either did not properly vet Mr. Gilchrist, or that she simply doesn’t care. Her statement that she supports Israel is not enough. Whitmer owes it to the people of Michigan to remove Mr. Gilchrist as her running mate... More >

Who is the real Whitmer? Go to the tape. Gretchen Whitmer desperately wants Michiganders to think she shares our state’s mainstream values, but the tapes don’t lie. Again, and again Whitmer has been caught on tape disparaging the Federal law enforcement officers who keep our borders safe. While attending a rally of progressives in Lansing, she said that we should abolish the law enforcement agency, ICE: the agency that protects our borders, stops human trafficking, prevents terrorism, and blocks illegal drugs from entering our country. And, while her running mate said that our law enforcement officers were threatening lives, Whitmer silently nodded her support in an effort to court the progressive vote. However, whenever she is confronted by the media on these extremist stances, Whitmer waffles. How can Michigan trust someone willing to waffle on something as important as keeping our families safe? When it comes to enforcing our state and nation’s laws, Whitmer won’t. More >
