Whitmer Wins Second Debate as Schuette Struggles to Defend Record of Filing Nine Lawsuits to Rip Health Care Away from 680,000 Michiganders

DETROIT — Eric Goldman, Campaign Manager for Gretchen Whitmer for Governor, issued the following statement on tonight’s gubernatorial debate in Detroit:

“Gretchen Whitmer was the clear winner of tonight’s debate. Schuette’s desperation was on full display as he struggled once again to defend his record of filing nine lawsuits to rip health care away from 680,000 Michiganders and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions like cancer and autism. Meanwhile, Gretchen focused on her bipartisan record of working across the aisle to expand Medicaid, demonstrating that she is the only candidate who can bring people together to solve problems and get things done, like finally fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and protecting health care.”
