Republicans for Granholm Formed

WOOD TV and WGVU radio are reporting the formation of Republicans for Granholm by Gil Ziegler, a Charlevoix businessman and former Republican candidate for Congress. Ziegler has praised Jennifer Granholm for her “21st Century Jobs Fund” and for signing 59 tax cuts into law. He was also critical of the Michigan Republican Party’s move to the right.

“This was a hard decision,” said Ziegler. “I’m going to disappoint some people in the Republican party. But, those are the extremists in the party who want to block stem-cell research and who turned out of office a good man like Congressman Joe Schwarz (MI-R 7th district).” Moderate Republican Joe Schwartz lost his primary battle to a far right Republican, Tim Walberg.

Granholm also received the endorsement of Detroit Mayor Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on Thursday. As I reported yesterday, Granholm has taken a seven point lead over Dick Devos in the latest EPIC-MRA poll.
