The Michigan Republican Party (MIGOP) released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox in response to the primary results in Michigan’s 3rd congressional district.
“Tonight, I would like to congratulate Peter Meijer on the big victory in his primary. When Michigan’s 3rd congressional district needed a voice in Washington, Justin Amash turned his back on his constituents. Peter is a conservative veteran who will bring strong, stable, and effective representation to West Michigan – and never turn his back on us.”
“The Democrats hand-picked candidate in Michigan’s 3rd congressional district stands no chance against Peter this November. Hillary Scholten is just another Obama administration alum who will be a rubber stamp on Nancy Pelosi in Congress instead of fighting for what’s right for West Michigan.”
