The remark was made Wednesday - the day after Michigan's primary election - at a GOP unity luncheon.

We didn't think it was possible to make politics any seedier than it already was, but it turns out we were wrong.

What Was the Exact Quote?

Surprisingly, the quip was uttered by a female, state party co-chair Meshawn Maddock, who reportedly said, "Tudor Dixon is a much younger, smarter, and hotter Gretchen Whitmer."

Rachel Louise Just quoted the GOP leader in a Tweet that was made around lunchtime Wednesday, supposedly from the venue where the unity luncheon was held.

Reaction to the Comment

Deadline Detroit pored through the Twitter thread and reports that dozens of Twitter users chimed in, calling the remark "disgusting," "a disgrace to all women," and evidence that "misogyny is on the ballot."

Only One Candidate Responded to the Quip

A campaign spokesman for Governor Whitmer responded to the gaffe, saying in part:

"There are clear contrasts in this race on the issues that actually impact Michiganders’ lives."

Deadline Detroit reports that the Dixon campaign did not take the opportunity to weigh in.
