Michigan GOP Candidate’s Teen Daughter Becomes Internet Hero After Begging People Not To Vote For Her Dad

An election for Michigan State Representative has taken an interesting turn after one of the candidates’ daughters took to Twitter to beg people not to vote for her father.

Stephanie, the daughter of far-right Republican candidate Robert Regan, wrote on Twitter:

“if you’re in michigan and 18+ pls for the love of god do not vote for my dad for state rep. tell everyone”

Stephanie went on to clarify who exactly her father was.

She urged voters to do their research about why her dad was a bad choice.

Many people online took Steph’s advice and quickly discovered quite a few red-flags surrounding Robert Regan.

Regan himself responded to his daughter’s tweets, saying he supports her first amendment rights.

Reagon also not-so-subtly implied his daughter was a communist, saying:

“A lot of students when they go off to these liberal university campuses, like the University of Colorado [where Stephanie goes to university] and they just kind of get sucked into this Marxist, communist ideology and she and I just don’t see eye to eye when it comes to the whole socialism, communism, Marxist philosophy.”

One person who was more than happy to see Stephanie’s tweets was Regan’s Democratic opponent, Bill Saxton.

Saxton took the opportunity to show the internet what his candidacy is about.

Unfortunately for Regan, Twitter has a long memory when it comes to embarrassing moments.

If you’re a Michigan resident, be sure to think over the advice of Robert Regan’s daughter before you head to the polls.

She probably knows him better than almost anyone.
