Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer will have to fight to stay in the governor’s mansion next year. Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig is challenging the embattled Democrat while focusing his platform on education and support for police.
Fox Business reports:
JAMES CRAIG: What’s missing here in Michigan and in our nation — a leadership void. People are sick and tired of politics as usual. People do a lot of talking, but they don’t do anything. And so what Detroiters have come to learn and Michiganders are learning now is that I lead from the front.
We saw what happened in Detroit last year. Certainly, we were one of the few major cities that didn’t burn last year. We’re talking about leadership — building relationships.
Small businesses are sick and tired of these unilateral decisions. It’s not the pandemic. It’s really the decisions that were made. And then you talk about schools. I mean, so there’s a lot going on. But people want leadership. It’s just that simple.
Gretchen Whitmer has faced sharp criticism over her response to the Coronavirus pandemic and her strict mandates.
