In the state of Michigan, the Republican primary election will take place on August 2nd, a Tuesday.
Gretchen Whitmer’s COVID shutdowns have had a negative impact on the state of Michigan’s economy and educational system, and the Republican candidates for governor of Michigan are attempting to reverse these effects by enacting a number of policies that will improve the state’s economy and educational system.
Before Tuesday’s primary, the longtime businessman criticized Whitmer for the damage she had done to Michigan’s businesses, laid out his plans to re-energize the state’s economy, and claimed he was the best-positioned to win in November among the many other Republican candidates running for the office in a competitive field.
“Gov. Whitmer’s shutdowns made Michigan #1 in a handful of areas, and I’ll share them with you,” Rinke said, citing the governor’s accomplishments. Rinke stated. “We lead the country in terms of the number of small businesses that were forced to close their doors per inhabitant. Because of this, we now have the lowest personal income per capita of any state in the country after suffering a loss of 9.8 percent. The number of employed women who were forced to leave their jobs as a result of COVID was the greatest of any time period in the country.
“Our country’s public education system is seeing the most rapid deterioration of any in the United States. In addition, a poll that was conducted not too long ago found that Michigan is the only state that is still 127,000 jobs behind where it was before Gretchen Whitmer’s inauguration.
