3 min read – Gretchen Whitmer had a tough week. In Wednesday’s Democratic debate – Whitmer was repeatedly attacked by fellow candidate Adul El-Sayed for being controlled by corporate special interests and having a 527 riddled with corporate donations. He didn’t say once or twice. He went to the well time and time again. While Whitmer tried to explain herself. She did it badly. And, as noted by Michigan Capitol Confidential – she doesn’t have a leg to stand on. For those interested in the Governor race – it’s a great read. Click on the link below.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, the same day she got slammed by the GOP. It’s so bad – even non-partisan, third party groups are calling foul. From the Detroit News article, “The complaint “potentially could be legitimate,” said Craig Mauger of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, whose group tracks unreported issue ad spending. “If you’re running a 30-second ad that is so positive about a candidate and says all these great things, and then you mention this person is a candidate for office, I think anyone watching would think that the message of the ads is to vote for that person for that office,” Mauger said.” Click on the link below.
