According to reports, John Gibbs has defeated incumbent Rep. Peter Meijer in the GOP primary for Michigan’s 3rd congressional district.

American Principles Project’s super PAC was active in the race, running a digital ad campaign to inform voters about Meijer’s record supporting radical pro-transgender legislation, the so-called “Fairness for All Act.” The campaign also praised Gibbs as a conservative leader and signer of APP’s Big Family Pledge

 

In response to the result, APP President Terry Schilling released the following statement:

 

“The Big Family earned a massive win tonight in Michigan’s 3rd district. Peter Meijer was one of the chief sell-out Republicans in Congress, most notably betraying families with his support for a bill that would put boys in girls’ sports and private spaces. Even as other GOP members dropped off the legislation recently due to its likely radical impacts, Meijer has still refused to change course.

 

“But tonight, voters in Michigan sent a message to other sell-out Republicans like Meijer: if you abandon us, you will be unelected. Now, voters will have the opportunity to send a true conservative champion, John Gibbs, to Congress in November who will fight on their behalf. APP fully endorses Gibbs’ candidacy, and we look forward to him joining the growing ranks of pro-family lawmakers in Washington next year.”
