MRP Statement on Redistricting Stay
LANSING, Mich., May 24, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding the US Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay in the Michigan Redistricting Lawsuit.
“The Michigan redistricting lawsuit is simply a desperate attempt by partisan Democrats to redraw our state’s legislative lines two years early. Their political games would disenfranchise Michigan voters and force early elections. I applaud the United State Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay in the case. This will allow our legislature to continue focusing on getting things done for the people of Michigan, instead of unnecessary partisan battles over political maps.”
