During a speech Tuesday, former Detroit police chief and potential Republican gubernatorial challenger James Craig likened Democratic Governor Whitmer’s administration to a monarchical reign, urging Michigan voters to declare “independence” from it.

“Please listen to me, Governor Whitmer,” Craig said. “America isn’t a monarchy. We aren’t ruled by kings and queens. We ended that back in 1776.”

“Make no mistake, at the ballot box in the year of 2022, we will be celebrating our independence from the rule of Governor Whitmer,” he added.

Craig blasted Whitmer’s management of the pandemic in Michigan, nodding to the prolonged punitive COVID policies that kept the state locked down for many months, while the governor defied her administration’s own travel restrictions.

The possible GOP contender outlined his personal journey to the Republican Party. He said that he gravitated to the GOP after observing how government dependence, promoted by the Democratic Party, mired the African-American community in cyclical poverty. A retired leader in the police force, Craig also grew unsettled by the Democrats’ dwindling support for law enforcement.
