Calley Joins the Fray of Corporate-Loving GOP Gubernatorial Hopefuls 

MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley’s announcement that he’s running for governor.

“The crew of corporate-loving, DeVos-backed Republicans vying to be Michigan’s governor continues to grow with Brian Calley,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Calley has been Snyder’s right-hand man through every disastrous decision since 2010. The Flint Water Crisis, taking money out of the pockets of retirees and teachers, our crumbling roads, skyrocketing tuition, and the Unemployment Insurance debacle are just as much the fault of Calley as they are Rick Snyder. Calley may have a better smile and stump speech than Snyder, but he offers nothing but the same failed policies that have helped the wealthy, while hardworking Michiganians have struggled to afford the basics.”
