Two weeks ago, President Obama came into my home district [and] he trash-talked me because I’m the leading candidate for governor. And today he’s coming in because the primary is on Tuesday and [Democratic Rep.] Carolyn Kilpatrick is in the race of her political life, and he’s going to use this to promote her candidacy. He says he’s doing these trips for this or that, but what he’s really doing is either try to damage one campaign or help another campaign. Why else would a president go into the same state two times in two weeks? It makes no sense.
[And] the president is picking winners and losers [on electric vehicles]. There are all kinds of competing technologies out there to increase fuel efficiency and improve performance … Yes, let’s have the government create an environment for competitive solutions to work their way through the marketplace, but the government is getting overly involved in managing our economy.
I’m sure the president will not talk about one of the most devastating things that happened when the government took over the auto industry: how they made the disastrous decision to close all these auto dealerships in an unfair way. There were a lot of people and a lot of families that were hurt when he did that.
He won’t talk about the negative things, he’ll just try to talk about the positive, but there were dramatic negatives that happened when this president made some of the decisions that he made regarding the auto industry.
I’m glad we’re getting new jobs in Michigan with that, but what people in Michigan are saying is, “Let’s have less government interference in our businesses. Let us compete in the market dynamics and we’ll be just fine.”
State of the race: In the last days of this primary campaign, the field has been narrowed down to three candidates who all have a chance to win on Tuesday. Pete Hoekstra, Mike Cox, and Rick Snyder are all in a position to win this race. As most of you know, Michigan has had Democrat Jennifer Granholm running our state over the last 8 years, and many people in the usually blue Michigan are ready to vote for a Republican in November. In the polling that has been done, a generic republican candidate beats a democratic candidate by huge margins. However, Mike Cox’s campaign has been boosted by Mike Huckabee’s endorsement which has helped him get through the scandal that has cast a shadow over his entire campaign from the start. Democrats across the whole state want Mike Cox to win because his baggage will make him the easiest to beat in November. Rick Snyder is a rich outsider who didn’t attend most of the debates and bankrolled the majority of his campaign. He is an unknown who only has a chance to win this race because of the enormous amount of money he has spent on the campaign. He is suspected of being socially liberal and economically conservative, but his lack of legislative experience makes it hard to know for sure.
Pete is the candidate we want to win for sure and we don’t have any more time left to wait and hope he wins. We need to help him NOW! As you can see here, Mitt has been working hard to help Pete and should Pete win, Michigan will be forever grateful. Michigan will finally have a conservative governor!
