MICHIGAN’S REPUBLICAN SWEEP

Michigan winners last night included…

REPUBLICAN Rick Snyder

REPUBLICAN Attorney General Bill Schuette

REPUBLICAN Secretary of State Ruth Johnson

REPUBLICAN SUPREME COURT JUSTICES Mary Beth Kelly & Bob Young

Other highlights…

Dr. Benishek took Bart Stupak’s seat, even with spoiler Glen Wilson trying to siphon votes away

Ray Franz defeated water-stealer Dan Scripps. Scripps had wrote legislation to put Michigan’s water (even the ponds in our backyards) in governmental hands.

Justin Amash was victorious. He was a tea-party favorite and those following his Facebook posts are able to see every vote he makes and why. THAT’S transparency! He’s a great example to other candidates to see how they should act while they’re in office.

And many many local races were Republican. My own county, Grand Traverse, with a few exceptions, looked to be in the neighborhood of 70-30% across the board pro-Republican. It was obvious that many just filled in “Republican” on the top of the ballot in our county. That is obvious when you see the Board of Regents, Trustees and other positions all going Republican.

And finally…Michigan Republicans regained control of the House and increased their numbers in the Senate, which will help Republican Governor Rick Snyder implement his plans to turn Michigan around. At least now we have a chance…
