ANOTHER TOUGH GUY
While waiting for Craig to finally announce his political plans, another law enforcement officer decided he didn’t want to continue to be a bridesmaid on the sidelines, and announced he too was seeking the Republican nomination for governor in ‘22. Captain Mike Brown of Michigan State Police, who is commander of MSP’s southwest Michigan’s district, said he sees a crisis of leadership in Whitmer’s handling of the pandemic, public safety, jobs and school closures, and he feels Michiganders need another choice from the law enforcement community. In a video announcing his candidacy, Brown said “radical Democrats embracing a full-on assault against the law enforcement profession” have contributed to what he said is a crime wave in Michigan and across the U.S. While he wouldn’t answer questions regarding fraudulent election claims for 2020, he did say he had election integrity questions regarding 2016 and Russian collusion.
