Lt. Gov. Brian Calley Makes His Case for Why He Should Be Next Governor

“Things have really turned around in our state. I’m running for governor to keep the comeback going, but then to bring it to the next level.”

Lt. Governor Brian Calley is explaining why he wants to be the next governor of Michigan.

Calley spoke to 9&10 News Friday morning about a wide range of issues, from the race for governor to education to Line 5.

He’s running with support from Governor Rick Snyder, campaigning on improving education in Michigan, supporting skilled trades education and reforming social services.

Calley touts tax and regulation reforms that he spearheaded at the state level.

His biggest Republican opponent for governor is Attorney General Bill Schuette, who’s gained President Donald Trump’s endorsement, something Calley doesn’t think hurts his chances.

“One thing I’ll say about primary voters in Michigan is they hate being told what to do. If you look at the history of primaries in Michigan, you’ll find that while the political establishment tends to try to make the decision ahead of time, our voters correct that decision time and time again. The person who will win the nomination and governor is the one with the strongest track record of delivering results for the people of Michigan, and the best plan for the future,” said Calley.

Calley will head to a business roundtable Friday afternoon in Traverse City.
