Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON [DATE REMOVED] 1, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad DETROIT — Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign began airing a radio ad featuring former President Barack Obama. The 60-second ad focuses on Whitmer’s work as Senate Democratic Leader to expand Medicaid to more than 680,000 Michiganders and her plans to clean up our drinking water and improve education and skills training. “I’m so proud to have the support of President Obama because this election is so crucial for Michiganders,” said Whitmer. “Health care is on the ballot this [DATE REMOVED]. Clean drinking water and good schools for our kids are on the ballot. It’s so important that everyone gets out and votes so we can start solving problems for the people of our state. Let’s get it done.” “Gretchen Whitmer is keeping her foot on the gas and doing everything she can to turn out voters and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” said Whitmer for Governor Deputy Communications Director Eileen Belden. “Meanwhile, Republicans are abandoning Bill Schuette left and right, and his campaign has cancelled ad buys across the state as Michiganders reject his record of trying to rip health care away from hundreds of thousands of people.” CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE AD AD SCRIPT: PRESIDENT OBAMA: “This is Barack Obama. In this election, the health of millions is on the ballot. The character of our country is on the ballot. And your vote can make the difference. As Senate Leader, Gretchen Whitmer worked to raise the minimum wage and expand Medicaid so that 680,000 people now have health care. That’s huge. Gretchen believes, like I do, that every child deserves a good school and safe water to drink. And she has a plan to give people the skills and training they need to get good jobs, starting in high school. You’re not going to have to wonder if she’ll protect your health care or fight for good jobs, good wages, and good schools. She’s proven that she will. Gretchen never gives up. So make a plan for [DATE REMOVED] and take some friends with you to vote for Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s bring it home, Michigan.” NARRATOR: “Find your polling place and vote [DATE REMOVED] 6th between [DATE REMOVED] and [DATE REMOVED].

Clean Up Our Drinking Water - Gretchen Whitmer for Governor100%Skip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Clean Up Our Drinking Water HOME ISSUES CLEAN UP OUR DRINKING WATER The health of our communities and the strength of our economy depend on the fundamentals of clean air, safe water, and nutritious food. Every Michigander deserves the opportunity to be successful, starting with their health. That means protecting the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil in which we grow. But disparities in the quality of air and water based on where you live or on your income, have had a devastating impact on the health of our families and our kids. It is this very injustice that caused the Flint water crisis. Water is the lifeblood of our state, and the Great Lakes are at the center of it. Michigan will disproportionately suffer the impact of climate change, and rising temperatures have already done harm to our lakes, but we can change course. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN For the sake of our health, our economy, and the nearly 1,000,000 jobs in fishing, farming, and tourism that are anchored on the Great Lakes, we must act now. As Governor, I am committed to: Clean up our drinking water. As governor, I will fight to clean up Michigan’s drinking water, unlike the Snyder administration’s failures. My infrastructure plan will speed up the replacement of lead service lines across the state so every parent can turn on their tap, bathe their kids, and give them a glass at the dinner table. Protect the Great Lakes Not just for our rich heritage, their pristine beauty, or the nearly one million jobs they help generate for our state, but because it is our responsibility as the stewards of over 20% of earth’s freshwater and the groundwater that goes with it. Some of my favorite memories include swimming in the Thornapple River, fishing off the dock in Onekama with my brother and sister, and climbing the dunes on Lake Michigan. Climate change has impacted our lakes by lowering water tables and stimulating massive algae blooms. We must also do more to prevent a more aggressive spread of invasive species like Asian carp and lampreys. We in Michigan are defined by our water, and it’s up to us to protect it. Enter Michigan into the US Climate Alliance When the federal government withdrew the United States from the Climate Agreement, I called on Governor Snyder to join hundreds of mayors and a dozen governors across the nation in committing to lowering carbon emissions. He refused, but I won’t. I am committed to fighting for our air and water. To lead the world in water policy We have research universities, we have midwestern grit, and we have water. As Governor, I will bring people together to make Michigan a world leader in water policy. Relying on science, facts and truly independent studies to guide how we address the challenges of balancing our environmental impact, jobs, and the sanctity of our waterways. An oil spill in the Great Lakes would be absolutely devastating to our environment and our economy. We can’t afford to sit around and wait for disaster to strike, we need Governor Snyder and Bill Schuette to stop making excuses and announce an immediate plan to shut down Line 5. Enough is enough. If they don’t have the guts to do their jobs and take action, we’ll get it done when I’m governor. On the day I take office, I will immediately file to enjoin the easement and begin the legal process for shutting down Line 5 to protect the Great Lakes, protect our drinking water and protect Michigan jobs. Hiring impartial experts To oversee and regulate our emissions standards will ensure that scientists, and not corporate interests, are making the decisions that impact our water and air.

Former President Barack Obama Endorses Gretchen Whitmer for Governor - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 1, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Former President Barack Obama Endorses Gretchen Whitmer for Governor DETROIT — Today former President Barack Obama endorsed Gretchen Whitmer for Governor of Michigan. “I’m proud to endorse Gretchen Whitmer because Michigan’s middle-class families need a governor who knows how to get things done,” said former President Barack Obama. “Gretchen has spent her whole life getting real results for hardworking Michiganders, whether it was raising the minimum wage, or working to expand Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act to cover more than 680,000 people. As governor, she’ll focus on getting things done that will actually make a difference in people’s lives right now, like fixing Michigan’s roads, speeding up the replacement of lead pipes in communities like Flint, and getting our kids the skills they need to compete for good-paying jobs. That’s exactly the kind of leadership Michigan needs in the governor’s office right now.” “It’s such an honor to have President Obama’s support because as President he fought every day to make sure hardworking Michiganders had access to quality, affordable health care and worked to rescue Michigan’s auto industry, which saved 1.5 million jobs,” said Whitmer. “Thanks to the Affordable Care Act and the work I did as Senate Democratic Leader to expand Medicaid, more than 680,000 Michiganders now have health care who didn’t before. There’s still more work to do, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and expand Medicaid to the 600,000 Michiganders who still need care. Let’s get it done.” “It’s so exciting to have President Obama’s support,” said Gilchrist. “I started off my career as an organizer by serving as Social Media Manager for the 2008 Obama campaign in Washington, and as National Campaign Director at MoveOn.org, I spearheaded a campaign to expand Medicaid in states with Republican governors, like Michigan. As Lieutenant Governor, I’m ready to work side-by-side with Gretchen, President Obama, and everyone who wants to get to work expanding Michiganders’ access to health care.” ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post New Group of ‘Business Leaders for Whitmer’ Forms to Help Elect Gretchen Whitmer as Michigan’s Next Governor Next Post   Whitmer Launches Campaign Ad Focused on Health Care, Protecting People with Pre-Existing Conditions Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

TV Stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, Traverse City Pull Down False DeVos Attack Ads Against Whitmer - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON NOVEMBER 2, 2018 BY ZACK POHL TV Stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, Traverse City Pull Down False DeVos Attack Ads Against Whitmer SOUTHFIELD – Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign issued the following statement from Campaign Manager Eric Goldman commenting on news that three Sinclair TV stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, and Traverse City pulled down a false and misleading attack ad by the DeVos-backed group Priorities for Michigan. “As Bill Schuette struggles in the polls, it’s clear that the only ammunition they have left are desperate lies and smears. We applaud Sinclair TV stations for moving quickly to take down this libelous and misleading dark money smear. We call on the remaining stations that are running this ad to fulfill their legal obligation and follow Sinclair’s lead by pulling down this false attack ad immediately.” BACKGROUND: As MIRS News reported [DATE REMOVED]: Mystery Group With GOP Ties Goes On TV With Unsourced Claim On Whitmer The enigmatic pro-Republican entity “Priorities for Michigan” is back with a TV ad claiming Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen WHITMER wants to make Michigan a “sanctuary state,” an unreferenced claim that doesn’t match anything she’s reportedly said on the campaign trail. The announcer in the “Priorities for Michigan” commercials warns that “thousands of migrants are moving north, demanding to cross our border.” … “Whitmer wants to declare Michigan a sanctuary state. Whitmer would take a dangerous gamble especially now,” according to the ad. When MIRS caught up with Whitmer at a Michigan Education Association meet-and-greet, she said this when asked if she ever said she’d make Michigan a sanctuary state, “I’ve never made that statement . . . No. I’ve never said that.” … “Priorities for Michigan” has funded a pro-Republican women’s recruiting group called a “League of Our Own,” whose “scouts” include former House Speaker Jase BOLGER, Michigan Freedom Fund head Tony DAUNT and four female Republican House members, among others connected to Republican politics. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad Next Post   Detroit Free Press: Gretchen Whitmer officially sworn in as Michigan’s 49th governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
