LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A jury convicted two men on Tuesday of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020.

The verdict came down quickly, as Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. were convicted of two counts of conspiracy related to the kidnapping scheme.

Croft was also convicted of another explosive charge.

This is the second time the men have been put on trial. Back in April, a federal jury acquitted two suspects, while the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision on Croft and Fox. Now, they’ve been found guilty.

The verdict led to reactions from numerous officials from across the state, including Gov. Whitmer herself.

You can find a breakdown of what people had to say below:

“I want to thank the prosecutors and law enforcement officers for their hard work and my family, friends, and staff for their support.  

“Today’s verdicts prove that violence and threats have no place in our politics and those who seek to divide us will be held accountable. They will not succeed.  

“But we must also take a hard look at the status of our politics. Plots against public officials and threats to the FBI are a disturbing extension of radicalized domestic terrorism that festers in our nation, threatening the very foundation of our republic.  

“I ran for office because I love my fellow Michiganders and my home state with all my heart. I always will. I cannot—I will not—let extremists get in the way of the work we do. They will never break my unwavering faith in the goodness and decency of our people. 

“I will stay focused on getting things done for the people of Michigan.” 

Governor Gretchen Whitmer

“It has been the honor of my life to serve alongside Governor Gretchen Whitmer as Lieutenant Governor. Since the day she asked me to run alongside her, I have seen her dedication and commitment to the people of Michigan. I have seen her devotion to the kind of public service that works around the clock to make Michiganders’ lives better and delivers real change for every community. I have seen her step up to the plate to make tough decisions.  

“Today’s outcome ensures that those who threaten to kidnap and kill public officials will be held accountable for their crimes under the law. When we took our oaths of office, we committed to serving all Michiganders. Violent extremists have tried to scare us and prevent us from doing our jobs, but they will not win. We will keep working hard, standing tall and standing tough, and living up to the oath we took. 

“Our differences must never be settled through violence. We need to be honest and clear about what causes violence by extremists and do all we can to address the root cause of it. Elected officials, parents, teachers, faith leaders, all of us have a duty to stand up to these hateful actions and teach our kids that there is a better way. 

“I know that Governor Whitmer will continue leading with grit to do what is right. I know she will always love this amazing state and she will keep putting Michiganders first—no matter what.” 

Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist

“Those who threaten the lives of public officials must be held accountable. No one should have to forfeit their safety or that of their loved ones in exchange for pursuing public service. If domestic terrorists are allowed to get away with acts of violence against the people’s representatives, they may soon turn that violence on our communities and residents. Today’s verdict is a victory for the rule of law and a significant defeat for domestic terrorism. I have a zero-tolerance for such acts and look forward to pursuing the state’s cases in court.”   

AG Dana Nessel

“Holding the men who plotted to kidnap our governor accountable for their actions is a good start in our ongoing battle against right-wing extremist political violence, but it is just that: a start. The political environment that resulted in this plot has not changed in the years since it was hatched.
