President Donald J. Trump Endorses Tudor Dixon for Governor
GRAND HAVEN, MI -President Donald J. Trump endorsed Tudor Dixon for Michigan governor on Friday, and Dixon issued the following statement:
"It is a great honor to receive President Trump’s endorsement and have the strength of our campaign to defeat Gretchen Whitmer further affirmed by his support.
"Our vision for a family-friendly Michigan clearly resonates with voters. It is the reason our broad coalition is growing.
"Voters of all stripes are tired of being crushed by the heavy-hand of big government ideological liberals like Gretchen Whitmer and Joe Biden.
"Families are struggling to make ends meet as they continue to raise taxes and choke businesses with jobkilling extreme regulation. Their wrongheaded economic policies have driven the country into recession and cost people their businesses, jobs, and livelihoods here in Michigan. They have caused our education system to fail a generation of students while promoting radical gender and race ideology instead of focusing on teaching kids how to read, write, do math, and be prepared to get good paying jobs. They have put criminals above law-abiding citizens and engaged in anti-Police rhetoric and activism which has caused violent crime to skyrocket across the state and attacks on law enforcement to increase.
"These policies are dangerous, they are ideologically motivated, and they are a disservice to Michigan families and law-abiding citizens who should be served rather than deserted by their political leaders.
"Gretchen Whitmer is focused on pleasing the union-boss financiers that pull her strings in Michigan and the far-left billionaires in New York and California that will fund her run for President. She has left Michiganders behind.
"Nevertheless, we will hold her accountable and make her a one-term Governor in just a few short months at which point we will finally be able to return power to the people and get on with the business of getting Michigan back on track. For our parents, our workers, our children, and our future."
Tudor Dixon is consolidating support across the state and establishing herself as the leader of a unified Michigan Republican Party. She's earned endorsements from the the Police Officers Association of Michigan, Right to Life of Michigan, the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Associated Builders & Contractors of Michigan, the DeVos family, former Governor John Engler, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, U.S. Representatives Lisa McClain, Bill Huizenga, and Tim Walberg, former Lt. Governor Dick Posthumus, and over twenty Michigan legislators.
