Candidates Debate in Michigan: Tudor Dixon Kicked Whitmer’s B***

It’s definitely the “silly season” – where candidates debate each other on the issues and voters are supposed to make their choices based on who comes closest to their views. Sometimes the debates can catch an incumbent in some egregious policies that are against common sense. One example was the Thursday night debate between GOP candidate Tudor Dixon and Gov Gretchen Whitmer.

Candidates debate in Michigan: Gov Whitmer vs Tudor Dixon

With polls showing Republican Tudor Dixon several points behind behind Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the GOP candidate came out swinging.

“We know the governor came out and said she supports the spirit of defund the police, and we know that while we were all locked down, she went out and marched with folks who held up signs that said, ‘Defund the Police”…law enforcement officers “will always know that a Dixon administration has their back. We will never defund the police.” Tudor Dixon 

Dixon claims to be endorsed by law enforcement entities around the state.

Whitmer’s Covid lockdowns in the state were extreme and long-lasting, which seriously angered parts of her constituency. She also appeared to violate her own rules for social distancing and mask wearing on a few occasions. But by far the worse policy was sending Covid positive patients to nursing homes, and then attempting to skew the numbers.

Dixon gutted Whitmer for all of her policies, from her sending virus-positive patients into nursing homes to her excessive shutdowns of schools to her attempts to downplay overall nursing home deaths…

“We have the letter from the nursing home association that said, whatever you do, don’t send Covid patients into nursing homes, and yet, the governor did,” said Dixon. “When Andrew Cuomo even backed off of this, Gov. Whitmer doubled down.” She continued:

She even tried to hide the final report of the numbers of how many deaths we had. In fact, she has tried to hide a lot from this pandemic. She tried to hide or she did hide effectively, why her department of Health and Human Services Director left. In fact, she even paid him off with a secrecy agreement. Breitbart

During the debate, Whitmer also stated that she wants zero restrictions on abortion even up until birth. She is openly in favor of Prop 3, which liberalizes abortion in the state.

So was Tudor Dixon able to fix her lagging polling numbers? Time will tell.  Governor Whitmer’s attempts to respond to Dixon were weak at best.

The debate was a small microcosm of the problems facing Democrats in the midterm elections. Their ridiculous, wrong-headed policies have crushed economies from the states to the Federal government, ad taken money out of your pocket. They have destroyed children, families. Our reputation abroad is destroyed. They’ve pushed the US closer to nuclear war and turned our military into a social experiment. They are a total disaster. Be sure to vote red next month and in 2024.
