Lansing, Mich., June 5, 2012 - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak issued the following statement in response to major networks declaring the results of the Wisconsin recall election:
"The real winner tonight are all of Wisconsin's hard working tax payers. I want to congratulate the citizens of Wisconsin for choosing Gov. Scott Walker and putting the interests of hard working middle class families ahead of the radical agenda pursued by liberal interest groups and union bosses.
"The message from Wisconsin is clear: Hard working tax payers are fed-up with the status quo and hungry for the common-sense bold-changes offered by Republicans.
"This is a great day for all Americans who stood squarely with Wisconsin Republicans, Tea Party organizations, and all conservatives in defending our liberty and freedom, and an especially bad night for Barack Obama.
"I especially want to thank Michigan Republican Co-Chair Sharon Wise for leading a group of Michigan activists to Wisconsin and thank the countless volunteers in Michigan who stood with Gov. Scott Walker by participating in the phone-from-home program.
"Michigan is on the cusp of a dramatic turnaround and I look forward to turning our focus entirely toward defending Michigan's comeback against Democrats and special interests who hope to stall the progress made by Gov. Rick Snyder and the Republican-led House and Senate."

I would like to share with you some insight in to the methodology of the passage of SB 693... and the fall out
Evidently some of Sen. Rick Jones (24th District) constituents were not happy with his yes vote or his comment on the Senate floor that I shared with you in the last Newsletter and post HERE "He had to "plug his nose and vote for the bill"
Senator Jones e-mail is HERE
So let's address his assertions, shall we?
First of all "You are spreading lies. You do not understand why we had to do what we did."

Independent in Michigan's First District Colludes with Michigan Democratic Party to Damage Benishek.
Is Glenn Wilson a man of integrity?
Last night, at the weekly meeting of the Petoskey Tea Party, the question was raised, "Will Glenn Wilson step out of the race on October 1st like he promised he would?"
Wilson, running as an independent candidate in Michigan's First District Congressional race, told the members of the Petoskey Tea Party that he would drop out of the race on October 1st if it was clear all he was accomplishing was taking votes away from the Republican. His promise was given when concerns were raised about his candidacy splitting the conservative vote and allowing the Democrat to take the seat.
Prior to the date of the primary, Wilson was introduced to the Petoskey Tea Party group, by then president of the group, Rich Carlson. Many of the members of the group were concerned by the fact that Wilson espoused many of the beliefs of the Republican Party, and wondered why Wilson did not duke it out in the primary like the rest. Wilson told the group, unequivocally, that if Jason Allen, a moderate Republican, did not win the primary, that he would pull out of the race. He clarified his pledge further, by saying that if by October 1st he had no real chance of winning, and he was hurting the chances of taking the seat away from the Democratic party, that he would drop out. "The tea party cannot support the Democratic party, and it is our job to get rid of RINO's," one tea partier said. Some mounting anger was felt at last night's meeting, considering that Wilson's campaign manager is Rich Carlson, and new revelations show collusion between the Wilson campaign and the Democratic Party in the latest smear against Dr. Dan Benishek.

The Boston Tea Party was an act of direct protest by American Colonists demanding representation in the British Government.They became known as the original patriots.
As the bailouts spiral out of control, we are forced to fund failed banks. With foreclosures on the rise, we are made the collateral of out-of-control spending . And, when the bills come due, the IRS knocks on the door of self-responsibility.
