Well, it’s happening folks, the downfall of Michigan’s tyrannical governor is finally happening…in a big, big way.
Not only is Whitmer immersed in a massive scandal involving her secret trip to Florida during a COVID outbreak in Michigan by using a private plane, but now, the final nail was just driven into her coffin with the announcement that uber-popular Detroit Police Chief James Craig is retiring from his post to run against her for governor of Michigan.
Craig is best described as “Sheriff Clarke” on steroids. He’s common sense, pro-law-enforcement, and all about quality leadership and his reputation in the state of Michigan is second-to-none.
Whitmer is in big trouble.
The Detroit News reported that James Craig, one of the longest-serving police chiefs in the city’s history, will run in a bid to challenge Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in next year’s gubernatorial race, a source close to the chief said Friday.
Craig, who is expected Monday to announce his retirement from the department, told The Detroit News he will follow that press conference with one discussing his future plans.
He did not deny that he plans to run against Whitmer as a Republican. “I’m a lifelong public servant,” Craig said. “I want to continue to serve.”
Prospects of Craig’s gubernatorial ambitions were first reported by Charlie LeDuff on his “No BS News Hour” podcast and confirmed independently by The News with the source close to Craig.
The chief acknowledged he has discussed a potential candidacy with both state and national Republican officials.
Ron Weiser, chairman of the state Republican Party, also acknowledged Friday he has talked with Craig and other potential contenders.
“I think he would make a fine candidate, should he choose to run,” Weiser said.
Republicans have been searching for a challenger with strong name recognition and cross-over appeal. Supporters believe Craig’s solid reputation as a fair, no-nonsense police chief who has spoken against anti-police protests and for Second Amendment rights, while maintaining strong community support, is their guy.
This is probably the worst news for Gretchen, but the best news for the people of Michigan.
