MDP Statement on Mike Pence Campaign Event in Holland

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement, on behalf of Party Chair Brandon Dillon, regarding Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s campaign event in Holland, Michigan, today:

“Mike Pence is only second to Donald Trump in how much of a danger his ideas and beliefs are to Michigan workers and families,” said Brandon Dillon, Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party.

“Whether you look at his record as governor of Indiana, where he attacked workers and passed a job-killing Right to Work law, or his time in Congress when he “strongly opposed” the auto industry rescue that saved Michigan’s economy, it’s clear that Mike Pence will do whatever it takes to benefit his wealthiest and most extreme supporters at the expense of working families. Mike Pence and Donald Trump lack the temperament and understanding of what it takes to lead this country and they will be an absolute disaster for Michigan families if they are somehow elected to the most powerful office in the world.”
