Michigan has a hotly contested Republican Governor’s Primary being decided today. The race has drawn much national attention, from 5 candidates being disqualified earlier this summer after signature problems to candidate Ryan Kelly being arrested for his involvement in attending the January 6 rally in D.C.
Michigan GOP’s Chairman Ron Weiser encouraged Michigan citizens to get out and vote, reminding them that the Democrats have been messing with their primary elections and that they need to replace Gov. Gretchen Whitmer with someone who will help Michigan.
Polls are OPEN right now and will remain open until 8pm tonight. If you haven’t voted already, GO VOTE!
