Last week, the Detroit News reported that ultrapartisan Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has started secretly colluding with former Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer (who also was a donor to Benson’s campaign) to change the boundaries of election districts to rig them in Democrats’ favor. Benson and Brewer have specifically excluded Republicans from this conversation to engage in secret negotiations. It is clear Benson has a conflict and I called on Benson to recuse herself from the redistricting lawsuit. To read more about it:
Detroit News: "Laura Cox, a former state legislator now running for Michigan Republican Party chair, accused Benson of trying to "rig the system in favor of Democrats." She noted that Brewer, one of nine attorneys for plaintiffs, gave Benson a $500 campaign contribution in 2017."
Press Release: Cox: “Jocelyn Benson needs to recuse herself as it is clear she is conflicted by her collusion to secretly negotiate a settlement with her former Democratic Party chair and campaign donor, Mark Brewer. Benson and Brewer are conspiring to rig districts in Democrats’ favor and there is no excuse for her exclusion of Republicans except to draw districts that favor Democrats,” said Laura Cox. “Benson has always been ultrapartisan, she is clearly conflicted and needs to recuse herself immediately.”

Thank You Speaker Chatfield
I want to congratulate Speaker Lee Chatfield for his willingness to help President Trump by offering the Michigan Capitol for next week’s State of the Union while Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats continue to obstruct. President Trump called Speaker Chatfield to tell him that the State of the Union will not take place in Michigan. No matter where President Trump winds up giving his State of the Union, I appreciate Speaker Chatfield’s leadership in this matter. I also appreciate Speaker Chatfield’s endorsement of my campaign.
