Former President Donald Trump endorsed Dixon just days before the election in a July 29 statement stating that “the Great State of Michigan is being destroyed by the Radical Left Democrats.”
“Tudor Dixon is a Conservative Warrior who built an impressive career in the steel industry while working with her fabulous father, who is now watching her proudly from above,” Trump wrote. She raised a wonderful family and is determined to save Michigan. According to the campaign, she’s pro-God and pro-Gun, and will not be stopped !”
The former radio host who was involved in Michigan’s steel sector, as well as former Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, her family and others, backed Dixon. The former Speaker of the House Newt Ginrich and John Engler were also supporters.
Dixon made education a central part of her platform, suggesting a ““Parents Right To Know Act” on Jan. 18 which would force any federally funded school to post all curriculum materials including textbook titles, library book titles, course syllabi and the district diversity, equity and inclusion plans and contracts on it’s website for the community to see. The plan, Dixon says, will “increase transparency and accountability” in K-12 schools throughout Michigan.
” I will make sure schools are open about what is suitable for students to learn. If schools feel that denigrating America should be taught, they can own it,” Dixon stated in the YouTube video. “If a school wants to hire a $25,000 an hour DEI consultant for a pep talk, let the community have that debate then they can hold their school accountable.”
