It’s an absolute win situation for the Republicans, who have been searching for a strong and loud candidate to oppose Whitmer. And apparently now – they got the perfect candidate!
According to a report published by Detroit News,
” James Craig, one of the longest-serving police chiefs in the city’s history, will run in a bid to challenge Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in next year’s gubernatorial race.”
“Craig, who is expected Monday to announce his retirement from the department, told The Detroit News he will follow that press conference with one discussing his future plans.
He did not deny that he plans to run against Whitmer as a Republican. “I’m a lifelong public servant,” Craig said. “I want to continue to serve.”
Craig’s gubernatorial ambitions were first announced by Charlie LeDuff on his “No BS News Hour” podcast. A source very close to Craig confirmed them shortly after, as well as The News.
“The chief acknowledged he has discussed a potential candidacy with both state and national Republican officials. Ron Weiser, chairman of the state Republican Party, also acknowledged Friday he has talked with Craig and other potential contenders.”
“I think he would make a fine candidate, should he choose to run,” Weiser said.
