MIGOP Statement on Buttigieg and Klobuchar Withdrawals

LANSING, Mich., March 2, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar suspending their campaigns in the 2020 Democrat Presidential Primaries.

“One can only wonder what type of backroom deals were secured to ensure the departures of Senator Klobuchar and Mayor Buttigieg after their strong showings just a few weeks ago. It seems like the Democrat party may be rigging their nominating process to favor the establishment candidate for the second straight cycle. One thing is for sure, no matter who emerges from the smoky backroom at the DNC, President Trump will soundly defeat them this November.”
