LANSING, Mich., March 3, 2017 – Michigan Republican Party Chief of Staff Colleen Pero, and Communications Director Sarah Anderson, issued the following statements calling on Democrats to denounce the offensive comments made by Representative Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana:

“Representative Richmond’s comments were reprehensible,” Chief of Staff Colleen Pero said. “This behavior toward women is unacceptable and Rep. Richmond should apologize. Considering that March is Women’s History Month, it seems we should have our members of Congress working to build women up, not demean them.”

“Democrats and Republicans alike should be appalled by this behavior,” said Communications Director Sarah Anderson. “Democrats must join Republicans in calling for an immediate apology. Senator Stabenow, Michigan is watching you. Will you stay on the side of partisan politics? Or will you stand up for all women, regardless of party, in calling out these offensive comments?”
