USMCA: Where’s Gary?

LANSING, Mich., December 10, 2019 – It's been over a year since President Donald Trump, along with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). After a year of waiting on Democrats, it finally looks like that agreement will get a vote in the House of Representatives. However, Michigan’s junior Senator Gary Peter still hasn’t stated how he will vote on the legislation.  USMCA is projected to add over $70 billion in investment to the US auto industry. Much of which will be centered in Michigan, home to the American “Big Three” automakers and over 100 automotive suppliers. It is also projected to add billions in new investment into Michigan’s agricultural industries. However, despite these tremendous benefits, Peters has been mute on the agreement's passage.  "After over a year of waiting, I am tremendously happy that the USMCA is moving forward. However, the inaction by Senator Gary Peters on an agreement that would be tremendously beneficial for Michigan is yet another example of Peters putting his partisan political loyalties ahead of the best interests of his state.”,  said Laura Cox Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox also stated, “It’s time Michigan had someone in the U.S. Senate who’s not afraid to say what he thinks and who will fight for the people, not for his party.” More >

Chairman Cox Statement on Republican Budget Victory

Lansing, Mich., December 10, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, following the Republican lead legislature's victory on the budget impasse: “Thanks to the hard work of Republicans, led by Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senator Mike Shirkey, Governor Whitmer’s self-created budget crisis is over. Governor Whitmer should have never used the people of Michigan as a bargaining chip in her desire for a 45-cent gas tax. I applaud the diligence of our members during this drawn out process, and I am happy to see that so much funding was restored to Michigan’s most vulnerable citizens and communities.” More >

MIGOP Statement on Democrat Articles of Impeachment

LANSING, Mich., December 10, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s announcement by Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats that they will pursue two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump: "The decision by Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats to pursue articles of impeachment without the support of a single Republican shows that this process is nothing more than a partisan witch hunt. It is clear that Democrats will put party over county when given the choice, and their three-year attempt to undo the 2016 election has done irreparable harm to our Republic. The people of Michigan do not support this process, and I hope Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin are ready to face their constituents in 2020.”   More >

Embattled Senator Peters Facing Claims of Illegal Coordination

Watchdog alleges Michigan Democrat, his campaign, and liberal special interest group illegally coordinated to benefit reelection.  LANSING, Mich., December 9, 2019 – On Friday morning, the Washington Times reported that the Foundation for Accountability (FACT) and Civic Trust filed a Federal Elections Commission (FEC) complaint against Senator Gary Peters alleging that the Michigan Democrat violated Federal Election law. In the complaint, Kendra Arnold (FACT executive director) alleges that “through postings on a designated webpage, Peters instructs organizations with which he is not permitted to coordinate to run advertisements beneficial to his campaign,”. Arnold goes on to say, “This is not general candidate or campaign information and not in the usual format as that provided to the general public. Rather, Peters provides detailed content for ads and markets in which to run the ads based upon the campaign’s internal data and advertising needs, and provides them in a format designated to directly communicate with outside organizations.” Since the post was placed on the Peters website, VoteVets, a progressive special interest group has placed two TV buys for Peters, benefitting him with over a million dollars of illegal in-kind contributions. Neither Peters nor his campaign has yet to speak out on the subject. He currently remains the least known senator in the entire United States. "Gary Peters knows that he is in for the fight of his life, and apparently he has reverted to cheating to try and save his job" said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “Due to his failed leadership, over half of the people of Michigan don’t know who... More >
