GOP Election Night Statement

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser issued the following statement upon learning Michigan voters elected Rick Snyder and Brain Calley to lead Michigan:

“By an overwhelming margin, Michigan residents chose Rick Snyder and Brian Calley to lead Michigan back to prosperity.  Today Michigan families all over the state decided it’s time to reinvent Michigan and they hired the best qualified team to do it. 

Governor-elect Rick Snyder will focus on the Republican principles of smaller and more effective government, lower taxes and more personal liberty.  He has the plan to both support and bring businesses back to Michigan.  After eight years of Jennifer Granholm’s failed Democrat leadership, this is exactly what Michigan needs. 

Governor-elect Snyder has the vision to usher us into a new day.  I know he will do a fantastic job and as a Party, we support him.

Michigan residents took advantage of our One Chance to fix Michigan and Snyder and Calley have the real-world experience to make it happen.   Now we begin a new era in our state-one that will keep our families here and one that will return Michigan to greatness once again.”
