A Michigan court just handed vocal Trump critic Gretchen Whitmer some devastating news.
“Recall petitions against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer can proceed, a Michigan court ruled,” according to Washington Examiner. “The Board of State Canvassers ‘correctly’ approved the six recall petitions against Whitmer and one against Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, Judges Kathleen Jansen and Michael Gadola of the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday, rejecting one argument made by counsel for the governor as ‘unpersuasive.'”
Whitmer argued that the original petitions did not “adequately describe the authorities cited as reasons for the recall.” She is planning on appealing the courts decision.
Whitmer campaign spokesman Mark Fisk elaborated:
We plan to appeal this disappointing decision, and we fully intend to beat back these irresponsible partisan attacks against the governor in the courts, on the streets, or at the ballot. This is part of a massive and coordinated attack by Republicans trying to make the governor fail, and our campaign will strenuously oppose these efforts so the governor can keep saving lives, reopening our economy and creating jobs.
