Shri Thanedar’s attempt to purchase a governorship with his personal fortune was resoundingly smacked down by voters. He did only […]

Whitmer and Schuette maintain decisive leads in most recent MI-GOV poll while El-Sayed, Thanedar, and Calley are barely competitive

Back in February, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed accused unnamed “establishment Democrats” of using “birther-like tactics” to derail his primary campaign after Bridge magazine published an article raising questions about his eligibility to run due to residency requirements.

Abdul El-Sayed goes negative in Michigan gubernatorial campaign, calls Dem opponent a “sub-standard candidate”, compares her to a Birther

I have largely avoided writing about Michigan’s gubernatorial this cycle. We interviewed both Gretchen Whitmer and Abdul El-Sayed on The Sit and Spin Room podcast early on but I have been watching the primary unfold without saying much.
