Tom Leonard takes first step to secure the GOP nomination
Michigan Democrats have what some might call a “kiddie pool” of candidates.
Not necessarily because of immaturity (though some might argue this), but because of the depth it represents. There are few rock stars remaining in Michigan politics on the donkey side of the slate, and those who have any gravitas are shooting for the governor’s seat.
Tom Leonard, instead of waiting around for even more Republicans to be elected to do the right thing has taken a chance or two. He attempted to get the income tax reduction finished, but it wasn’t something our ‘progressive’ governor wanted, and the chief executive’s cronies did what they do; stall good policy. Unfortunately Leonard’s time as house speaker has come to an end. Some might consider it the other side of the blade of term limits.
This is Leonard’s announcement for Michigan’s attorney general. Below the fold is his emailed announcement.
