Tudor Dixon Slams Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal as “Fake” — Do Other MI GOP Candidates Also Oppose It?
As Americans celebrated the Senate passing the historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act this week, GOP candidate for governor Tudor Dixon called the bipartisan deal a “fake infrastructure plan that does little for roads and bridges.”
With Dixon coming out strongly against the popular infrastructure and jobs investment, this raises the question for James Craig, Garrett Soldano, and all other Republicans running for Governor in Michigan who have so far stayed silent: do they also oppose the bipartisan infrastructure bill?
Dixon’s claim couldn’t be further from the truth. The bill is a gamechanger for American workers and families, which is why it’s earned praise from both sides of the aisle. Michigan would see direct positive impacts, including:
- $7.3 billion for highway repairs and $563 million for bridge replacement
- $1 billion for public transportation improvements
- $110 million to expand Michigan’s charging network for electric vehicles
- $100 to provide broadband coverage and help low-income households afford internet
“Tudor Dixon has made it clear that she opposes fixing Michigan’s roads and bridges and creating thousands of good jobs,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “With Dixon blasting this popular and bipartisan investment in Michigan’s economy and workers, will James Craig and Garrett Soldano along with all other GOP candidates for governor also oppose the bill? The fact that opposition to this common-sense plan to help fix Michigan’s infrastructure is yet another unpopular litmus test for Republican candidates means the GOP’s already bumpy road to selecting a nominee will be filled with even more potholes.”
