TROUBLE ON BOARD
What’s going on with former Detroit Police Chief James Craig’s campaign for governor? The “presumed” Republican frontrunner – and we say that because GOP leadership continues to call him the frontrunner – and his fellow – at this count – 10 other GOP candidates, if they all file by April 19, aren’t really giving him much of a challenge. And that’s not saying much. Craig is hydroplaning among voters, especially the Republican electorate. His campaign has been undergoing a “reboot” this winter, as Craig alleged that fundraising mailers where he attacked Michigan State Police as “weak-kneed...underlings” during his campaign launch had been sabotaged by someone in his own organization. Now, for the second time, on March 21, the manager of his campaign submitted his resignation. This time it is Adam Wright who has hit the exit. Former campaign manager Anthony Sarros said goodbye in December, and well-known political consultant John Yob, who helped launched the Craig campaign, moved on in November to spearhead fellow GOP gubernatorial candidate ‘Quality Guru’ Perry Johnson’s campaign.
