Whitmer Wednesday: The Walls Are Closing In On Gretchen Whitmer

October 19 2022

Democrats Are Starting To Panic That They Are On The Verge Of Losing

“Polls are tightening, and Republicans continue gaining traction up and down ballot despite Whitmer’s clear fundraising and spending advantage,” said Gustavo Portela, MIGOP Deputy Chief of Staff & Communications Director. “Michiganders are ready for solutions to their everyday problems, not empty recycled rhetoric from Gretchen Whitmer that they already heard four years ago. Tudor Dixon and our Republican candidates will fight for all Michigan families and will deliver relief from Democrat inflation that has made everything more expensive.”
