Statement From MDP Chair Lavora Barnes on This Afternoon’s GOP Primary Debate in Traverse City

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

“While four of the gubernatorial field Republicans were absent today due to the fraudulent signatures they submitted to the Bureau of Elections, the six candidates on stage made clear that they will continue to push their harmful agendas even further to the extreme. From bragging about participating in a violent insurrection to stripping funding from Michigan’s public schools and refusing to protect kids from gun violence, the candidates’ claims on stage ranged from bizarre conspiracy theories to alarming and downright dangerous plans. Michigan families deserve better.”
