GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The daughters of a conservative Michigan House of Representatives candidate recently sent out tweets urging people not to vote to him in November.
Robert Regan is attempting to win the the 73rd District seat in Michigan for a third time, but his daughters Stephanie Regan and Natalie Regan have both tweeted urging voters against voting for him.
The 52-year-old candidate said he was saddened by the tweets but was still proud of his daughters.
“Did it hurt me seeing that tweet? Of course it did. I’m the father, I’m human, you feel things like that, but one of the things I did with my children, all four of them, I said always focus on the truth. I’m really excited that they thought they had a solid enough relationship with me where they could dis me on social media and know that I’m not going to disown them,” " Regan told WOOD-TV.
Robert Regan responded to the tweets by posting an official statement on Facebook.
WOOD-TV reached out to his daughters, but have not heard a response.
