Rochester Hills, MI—Mike Bishop made the following statement:
“I have lived in this community my entire life and been serving this district well before the 2016 presidential campaign began. Donald Trump was not my first or second choice during the primary process, but Republican voters chose him and I respect their decision. I have been continuously troubled by his conduct and statements, and I publicly admonished him over his disgusting comments about women.
“When my opponent, Ms. Shkreli, was asked what she thought of the prior candidate Melissa Gilbert defending child rapist Roman Polanski, Shkreli said she would focus on her own campaign. I am choosing to do the same. I am focusing on Michigan and the Eighth District. I will not answer any more questions regarding Donald Trump. Our families deserve a campaign that is focused on the issues, something our 2016 discussions are solely lacking this close to Election Day.”
