Earlier in this election-cycle there were ten candidates vying for the position to run against incumbent Democrat Gretchen (Big Retch) Whitmer (boo-hiss!).
The five candidates who had the most impressive resumes, including former Detroit Police Chief James Craig, were blown out of the saddle when a "random audit" of their petitions to be included on the primary election ballot were found by the Democratic Secretary of State to be invalid.
Evidence suggests that the candidates that were drummed out of the race had hired a common firm to collect signatures and the majority of those signatures were fraudulent. It has been suggested that the firm was run by Democratic operatives whose goal was to torpedo those candidates. If so, the Repubs were very handily outmaneuvered.
That leaves the Repubs fielding the second-string for the primary and it is a motley crew.
Cutting to the chase, the most conservative candidate who I believe can win against Big Retch is a woman named Tudor Dixon as long as she is smart in who she picks for the Lt. Gov side of the ticket.
I think the Dems realize this and some truly nasty ads have been circulated slamming Dixon as a RINO. Oddly, nobody is taking credit for those ads. Most candidates want to collect more votes rather than sinking a fellow candidate and evenly distributing those votes amongst all of the other candidates.
A Tudor Dixon/James Craig ticket would be a very strong ticket. A Dixon/Soldano ticket would be OK as it would beef up Dixon's lack of grass-roots support.
Dixon neatly checkmates most of Whitmer's obvious ploys...Dixon has a uterus, Dixon has daughters (four of them!). Dixon is photogenic which is a HUGE plus with the younger generations who are visually oriented and scan social media. Whitmer likes to bring up that she "cared for her mother" when her mother had cancer to "show" that she has compassion and empathy. Dixon is a cancer survivor.
Whitmer cannot point to any success. Her promise to fix the roads was back-end loaded so most of the work would be done in the election-year. That backfired as traffic is horrific and the roads are still battered strips of pavement with potholes and proud "expansion strips".
Whitmer is trying to position herself as somebody who wants to lower taxes but she wanted to raise the Michigan gas tax by 45-cents-a-gallon.
The Repubs' second-string can beat the Dems but they gotta be smart about it. They cannot pick the most conservative candidate if that candidate is on the defensive for 90% of the game and cannot exploit Whitmer's multitude of weaknesses.
Unfortunately Gretchen and company have control of " who counts the Votes" and you Michiganders should get used to democrat control I'm afraid . I seen the videos of the republican poll watchers being excluded from the count and even cardboard taped over the windows to prevent any line of sight viewing . When they get away with blatant fraud like that you don't have a chance outside of prayer .ReplyDelete
Still think voting matters?ReplyDelete
Look at the dirty tricks they pulled registering candidates... c'mon, like they're going to be fair and honest???
More dirty tricks will come out. The Dems are desperate!!!ReplyDelete
I can't believe after being caught faking the whole kidnapping plot with the FBI, that whitmer is even still a candidate?! Sad that she wasn't primaried out by, I dunno, breaking the law? Reckon theres a falsified police report with her signature on it somewheres, isn't there?ReplyDelete
Seems affiliates are already working with the AP on primary results for a vote that hasn't occurred yet?ReplyDelete
Voting doesn’t matter. Get used to it.ReplyDelete
Voot at 'em! Voot hoder!ReplyDelete
The count decides the election, not the votes. Don't legitimize the fraud by participating.
The election matters. Anonymous is wrong.ReplyDelete
Tudor proved on my show she is no RINO.
I would rather see a Dixon/Ryan ticket.
Absolute idiocy. Democrats are evil but they are smart. The stupidity of not doing due diligence in the hiring of an organization for something as critical as signature verification. It is as if Republicans don't want to win.ReplyDelete
MI Governor is an idiot -- was a pretty common sign in my neck of the woods during the 'pandemic'. Time to scare one up again.ReplyDelete
