From Progress Michigan:
Tudor Dixon enthusiastically welcomes the support of Anti-LGBTQ+ Crook
Ties to Glenn Youngkin further confirm Dixon’s extremist views
MICHIGAN — As if Michigan voters needed more confirmation that Tudor Dixon is a right-wing extremist whose values couldn’t be further from those of most Michiganders, she brings Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin to Michigan to campaign for her. Youngkin, who has leaned heavily on homophobia, transphobia and attacks on honest education about racism, is currently being criticized for agreeing to a tax avoidance deal that came at the expense of firefighters’ pensions and municipal employees. He also publicly fought for Trump after the recent FBI raid on Mar-a-lago.
“I can’t say I’m surprised by Tudor Dixon’s choice to campaign with a bigoted extremist who supports Trump, but I’m still disappointed,” he added. said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Like Dixon, Governor Youngkin has repeatedly attacked the LGBTQ+ community and sought to undermine honest education in public schools – and, of course, he is also an anti-abortion extremist. His involvement in a tax avoidance deal that stripped hard workers of their pensions raises significant questions about his ethics and suitability for public office, and his attendance at the Michigan GOP convention only cements how MAGA’s party is out of touch with Michigan voters. .”
