UNHAPPY IN D.C.

August 21, 2018

Michigan insiders say that GOP national leadership is not pleased that Attorney General Bill Schuette, who carried the Trump endorsement in the recent primary for governor, selected Kent County Clerk Lisa Posthumus Lyons as his lieutenant governor running  mate. Lyons, a former member of the state House, was in the spotlight after her 2016 quote criticizing the behavior toward women of Donald Trump, saying he has “not earned my respect or my vote.”  In the House, Lyons – daughter of former Lieutenant Governor Dick Posthumus – would occasionally break Republican ranks on some legislative items, like no-reason absentee voting (she supported it). The rumor mill also has it that at least one of those on the advance list of possible female running mates (state Representative Laura Cox (R-Livonia) never even received a call from Schuette before his final decision.
