Robert “RJ” Regan

Candidate for State House,



Grassroots Conservative Leaders show support for Regan

Robert “RJ” Regan has earned the support of more local leaders distinguishing him as the conservative choice in the August 7 Republican primary for the 73rd Michigan House District, which includes the townships of Cannon, Courtland, Oakfield, Plainfield, Nelson, Grand Rapids Township and the city of East Grand Rapids.

Past 3-term state representative and RNC Committeeman Dave Agema along with Algoma Township Supervisor Kevin Green and Plainfield Township Trustee Frank Pfaff, who captured 20 percent of the primary vote for the 73rd in 2014 have also endorsed Mr. Regan.

“It certainly means a lot to me and to the voters in the 73rd to have the backing of such fine men in the community,” Regan said. “However, don’t forget about Jeanine Herlacher either!” Regan joked.

“Jeanine has been very active in Republican politics and was even one of the original conservatives in the tea party movement as well as a Ford Woman and part of the Kent GOP. Her support has been instrumental in the campaign.”

Rounding out Regan’s list of endorsements include Michigan GOP Grassroots Vice-Chair, Mark Gurley as well as current Plainfield Township Clerk, Cathleen Postmus and former Executive Director of Michigan Family Forum, Brad Snavely.

“I am just honored to have the support of people like Cathleen and Mark. Cathleen is very respected with her service as Plainfield Township clerk as well as over 20 years of distinguished service as a Grand Rapids Police Officer. And Mark, well, people involved in grassroots politics know all about Mark Gurley! He is a passionate and devoted Christian conservative who is very active politically. His support also means a lot to me. It is very humbling.”

Regan came in a strong second in the 2104 primary behind current state representative Chris Afendoulis, who is stepping down to pursue the State Senate seat vacated by current state senator Dave Hildenbrand who is term limited.

Regan is running as an “anti-establishment” candidate believing Michigan voters are tired of politicians who ignore their interest. Regan is focusing his campaign on a constitutional framework with “Trump-like” effectiveness. Regan is an avid supporter of president Trump and even spoke at the West Michigan Patriots for Trump rally earlier in May.

When asked about some of Trump’s controversial positions, Regan replied,

“We will never agree with everyone 100% of the time, but I do believe Trump is doing a great job as evidenced by our thriving economy and virtually full employment especially among African American and women voters.” Regan said.

“It is refreshing to have a president that actually stands up for our country and conservative values. I wish more Republicans would get behind him as well.” Regan continued. “Hopefully, his Supreme Court selection will be confirmed soon.”

Although he has never held public office, Regan has over 20 years of entrepreneurial manufacturing experience as well as banking and financial services to go along with his MBA and Finance Degrees.

As long as it’s not raining, Robert Regan can be found knocking on doors meeting voters, Monday through Saturday, throughout the 73rd District. He is the one with the dark tan and slight sunburn from being out in the sun virtually everyday campaigning with his Jeep Wrangler.
