Statement From MDP Chair Lavora Barnes on This Afternoon’s GOP Primary Debate on Mackinac Island

Following the chaotic, disastrous Republican gubernatorial field’s third primary debate of the 2022 cycle, MDP Chair Lavora Barnes issued the following statement:

“Today on Mackinac Island, the contrast could not have been clearer. Governor Whitmer’s strong leadership was on display as she announced a new landmark jobs investment and laid out an optimistic vision for Michigan’s future with a reminder of all the bipartisan work that has been done over the course of her administration. But this afternoon, four of the remaining Republican gubernatorial candidates pushed fringe plans to ban abortion, slash funding for education and critical services, reverse the progress Governor Whitmer has made on fixing the damn roads and risk our economic growth. Michiganders deserve better than their radical, out-of-step agendas.”
