Republican Candidate’s Daughter: “For The Love Of God Do Not Vote For My Dad”
A Michigan state representative candidate is facing a setback after his daughter tweeted to tell potential constituents not to support him. “I don’t feel safe sharing further information regarding his beliefs,” she wrote, “but please look him up.” Her father, Robert Regan, responded by blaming her college education for her disagreement with his beliefs.
When Stephanie Regan tweeted to beg the people of Michigan not to support her father’s bid for political office, she quickly drew attention from voters who wanted to know exactly who she was talking about, and why they shuoldn’t vote for him. She responded, naming and shaming. She said she didn’t feel safe to describe his beliefs, but urged voters to do a little research.
Since so many people are asking it is Robert Regan! Do a quick fb or google search to find info about his campaign. I don’t feel safe rn sharing further information regarding his beliefs, but please look him up and just read for yourself.

According to Political Tribune, Robert Regan responded on Facebook and in interviews, saying that he was proud that his daughter felt comfortable airing her views — though he didn’t address why she might be afraid to go into further detail about him. He blamed her college education, and said that he and his daughter disagree on the existence of systemic racism, before expounding upon the discrimination he believes he’s faced for being wealthy and white.
“You know, as a quote-unquote rich, white, Christian male, people look at me a certain way. And it’s not always good. So, everybody has obstacles to overcome.”
Robert Regan’s tweets on his official campaign account include accusing President Barack Obama and Vice Preident Joe Biden of criminal activity, complaining about COVID-19 safety measures, and supporting first responders in refusing medical care to protestors.

This is a glimpse of the ramifications of this toxic CHAZ or CHOP zone. Law and order must be established and maintained for America to function properly. I stand with the Thin Blue Line. https://t.co/U14BHCWRLX
