Behind the Poll

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed several GOP bills aimed at improving election intergrity. The Republicans who backed the bills claimed they would make it easier to vote yet harder to cheat. Whitmer claimed the bills would suppress the right to vote.

“This is just the latest example of Gretchen Whitmer’s politics getting in the way of actually governing,” Executive Director for Michigan Rising Action Eric Ventimiglia said in a statement. “This veto shows that Whitmer is more concerned with politics than the people they represent. If this package had four Democrat sponsors, she would hold a press conference calling it an achievement in voters rights.”
