Whitmer Crushes Bill Schuette in First Gubernatorial Debate

GRAND RAPIDS — Eric Goldman, Campaign Manager for Gretchen Whitmer for Governor, issued the following statement on tonight’s first gubernatorial debate in Grand Rapids:

“Gretchen Whitmer crushed Bill Schuette tonight. And it wasn’t close. No matter how hard he tries, Bill Schuette can’t hide from his record of joining nine lawsuits to rip health care away from 680,000 Michiganders and ignoring 15 complaints to his office on the Flint water crisis. Tonight Gretchen stayed focused on the issues that matter most to Michigan families, like finally fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and getting our kids the skills they need to help our kids compete for good-paying jobs, and that’s exactly what she’ll do as our next governor.”
