Lansing Establishment Rallies to Gretchen Whitmer’s Side to Stop Schuette.
Snyder’s cronies mean business. And the gators love themselves a progressive Democrat.
Government insiders pick Whitmer to protect them after Schuette stood up to the Lansing establishment on Flint and Ingham County establishment on Nassar and Dunnings
The Bill Schuette for Governor campaign said today that endorsements of Senator Gretchen Whitmer by members of the Lansing establishment are a signal that Gretchen Whitmer is the insiders’ choice to protect the status quo.
Stu Sandler, spokesman for Schuette says
“As Attorney General, Bill Schuette has been standing up for victims and families. Gretchen Whitmer has made a career of standing with special interests and Lansing insiders. It’s not a surprise that the same people who have been trying to stop Schuette from getting justice in Flint are the same people supporting Gretchen Whitmer. Schuette is willing to take on Lansing bureaucrats, Gretchen Whitmer will always side with special interests,”
Schuette takes on the establishment, even of his own party
As Attorney General, Bill Schuette has taken on the establishment at many levels, putting him on the side of Michigan families instead of government insiders.
– Flint Water: Schuette was the first to stand up and start an investigation into the poisoning of thousands of children, women, and men. In fact, Schuette stood up to an administration of his own party to do so and continues on today despite a non-stop onslaught of opposition to ongoing criminal cases taking place in a court of law by those who have endorsed Whitmer today.
– Nassar: Bill Schuette was the only prosecutor to step up and take on the Nassar investigation and prosecution, successfully putting Nassar behind bars, giving survivors the opportunity to face Nassar and address the world, and investigate and charge officials at the university.
– Ingham County Corruption: Bill Schuette is the prosecutor who challenged the Ingham County government establishment and cleaned up the corruption mess created by former Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings by charging criminal activities and securing a conviction.
Sandler rightly points out
“Gretchen Whitmer has an unaccomplished record as a public official, passing only three bills into law in 14 years and failing to successfully take on the establishment in Lansing, Ingham County, or anywhere else. Bill Schuette has a strong record of doing the right thing, even when it meant going against his own party to do so. He took on the Lansing and Ingham insiders as attorney general and will do so as governor,”
The Deep State …yes?
How could you miss the most important name listed in the endorsements of Whitmer?
"Gina Yob is a minority shareholder, as is her cousin, 3S CEO Joe Yob, who has been in the industry since 1989 and has authored textbook chapters and white papers on the subject.
Gina Yob is the daughter of Chuck Yob, a former Republican National Committee member, and sister of John Yob, founder of Grand Rapids-based GOP political consulting firm Strategic National Campaigning Management LLC.
She was the finance director for Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga's congressional campaign in 2011 and 2012; senior counsel for Lansing-based GOP political consulting firm The Sterling Corp.; and chief of staff for Lt. Gov. Brian Calley in 2008 and 2009 when he was a state representative."
So, her brother John blew it with loser Brian Calley, of which, Gina was once Calley's chief of staff.
Sour grapes? Nah, that would be doing nothing. The Yob family has gone full-blown scorched earth on Republicans with this stunt.
