Bernie Sanders Endorses Whitmer for Governor Sanders speaking at Whitmer campaign rally [DATE REMOVED] at U-M’s Rackham Auditorium DETROIT – Today U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) endorsed Gretchen Whitmer for Governor of Michigan. The Whitmer campaign also announced that Sen. Sanders will speak at a campaign rally for Whitmer at Rackham Auditorium on the University of Michigan campus [DATE REMOVED]. “I am proud to endorse Gretchen Whitmer for governor of Michigan,” said Sen. Sanders. “Too often, Michigan’s working families have been left behind by the political elite. That’s why Gretchen will work to get big money out of politics, invest in infrastructure, and move towards universal pre-school. In the year 2018 it is simply unacceptable that thousands of Michigan families have drinking water that is contaminated and unsafe. For Gretchen, it will be a top priority to make sure that every Michigander will have clean drinking water so that parents no longer will have to worry about the health of their children.” “I’m so excited to welcome Sen. Sanders to Michigan [DATE REMOVED] so we can build on our momentum and get more people fired up to head to the polls in [DATE REMOVED],” said Whitmer. “Michiganders are ready for a governor who knows how to get things done, like fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and protecting access to quality, affordable health care. If we’re going to solve these problems, we’ve got to get out and elect Democrats up and down the ballot. We’ve got to make sure our friends, families, and neighbors have a plan to get to their polling places. I’m not taking my foot off the gas until the polls close on [DATE REMOVED] 6th. Let’s get it done.”   WHAT: Campaign rally for Gretchen Whitmer and Michigan Democrats   WHO: Gretchen Whitmer, Democratic Nominee for Governor Garlin Gilchrist II, Democratic Nominee for Lt.

Repeal The Retirement Tax - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Repeal The Retirement Tax HOME ISSUES REPEAL THE RETIREMENT TAX After a lifetime of hard work, we must honor the promises made to our seniors so that they can retire in dignity in the state that they love. But right now working families and seniors are paying higher taxes under Governor Snyder As governor, I will protect our seniors and retirees by: Getting rid of the Snyder Retirement Tax, which will put more money in the pockets of Michigan seniors to spend on things like gas, groceries, and prescription drugs – which will help our small businesses grow and create jobs. Supporting options for independence at home, which should be a reality for more seniors who deserve financial and medical peace of mind. I will stand up to attacks on senior care, and will fight to improve coordinated medical benefits so that seniors can receive the healthcare they need in the comfort of their own homes for as long as they wish. Working to end elder abuse. As Senate Democratic Leader, I championed laws to create serious legal consequences for elder abuse, and attempts to exploit, neglect, intimidate, harm, or steal from our seniors. As Governor, I will continue to honor, defend, and respect our seniors and their rights.

Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP Attack 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 SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP Attack Ad Whitmer Took Swift Action to Put Nassar Behind Bars LANSING – Michigan sheriffs, prosecutors, and sexual assault survivors are blasting a new attack ad from the Michigan Republican Party. The sleazy new TV ad falsely attacks Gretchen Whitmer for her role in the Larry Nassar case. “I want to be crystal clear: this ad is a lie, plain and simple. I know because I was there,” said Pat Miles, former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan. “The truth is, Gretchen Whitmer took swift action to stop Larry Nassar once and for all. Her office got the search warrants that got the evidence that put Nassar behind bars, where he belongs. Gretchen did what any good prosecutor would do, and the fact that Bill Schuette and his allies are now using a tragedy like the Nassar case to score political points is simply appalling.” “By making this a political issue, we are essentially saying that the validity of your sexual assault depends on which side of the aisle you sit on,” said University of Michigan alum and Nassar survivor Grace French. “It takes the focus away from what you’re trying to solve, and makes us as survivors a pawn in a divided political climate. I call on Bill Schuette, politely, and respectfully, to make the Michigan Republican Party take down this ad. Leave my abusers face out of politics. Leave sexual assault out of politics.” “The Michigan Republican Party’s ad is a deplorable act on behalf of someone who is not ashamed of using me and my sister survivors to promote a lie for political gain. Bill Schuette should condemn the ad immediately,” said Nassar Survivor Jane Katzer. “This ad has played in my home and caused me to relive everything that Nassar himself had put me through. It’s an insult to me, it’s an insult to my family, and it’s an insult to everyone who has survived sexual assault.” “Bill Schuette needs to do the right thing and condemn this ad right now,” said Muskegon County Prosecutor DJ Hilson. “It does not portray an accurate picture of the truth and Schuette has the duty to tell the whole story. If Schuette believes in the truth, he will publicly demand that the Michigan Republican Party take this ad off the air immediately.” “Suggesting that Gretchen Whitmer is responsible for Larry Nassar continuing his atrocities by doing nothing is way beyond the pale – in fact it is repugnant. And a lie. And Schuette knows this,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. “Whitmer followed policy and procedure and suggesting otherwise is shameful. I usually refrain from commenting on how other electeds do their job, but I cannot let this pass. Protecting those that have been victims of sexual assault has been one of my life’s many passions for decades. I will not be a party to Schuette or anyone else being untruthful about the plight of these and other survivors. I will get up on my high horse and go far and wide if I have to speak this truth. Yes, I am a long time supporter of Gretchen Whitmer. But first and foremost I am a relentless supporter of the truth.” “The special interests have it wrong,” said Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth. “The evidence that was discovered in Larry Nassar’s home dumpster would have likely been destroyed if Gretchen’s office hadn’t acted so quickly. Assisting law enforcement investigators in drafting the search warrants was key in retrieving the evidence that ultimately led Nassar to plead guilty and receive a [DATE REMOVED] sentence.” As Bridge Magazine’s Truth Squad has reported, Whitmer “put the interests of justice and sexual assault victims ahead of her own political ambitions by allowing the attorney general to spearhead the cases rather than seeking to prosecute through her own office. Whitmer’s mantle as an advocate for sexual assault victims remains intact.” # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ Announces Formation to Help Elect Former Senate Democratic Leader Next Post   Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
