Hearings are expected to begin soon in the Michigan Legislature on a 39-bill Republican election package aimed at reversing absentee ballot access and early voting policies in the battleground state.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, on Thursday slammed the bills, describing them as a response to a problem that doesn’t exist, and that would tamp down legal voting.

The chairman of the Michigan Republican Party has made misogynistic comments about the state’s governor, secretary of state, and attorney general.

Ron Weiser – who is also a University of Michigan Regent – referred to Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel collectively as “three witches.” He made the remark in a speech to the North Oakland Republican Club.
