Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and Detroit Regional Chamber Align on Gubernatorial Endorsements

In June, the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Political Action Committee (PAC) announced gubernatorial candidate endorsements for Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and former state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer for Governor in the upcoming primary election, Aug. 7. Since then, the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press have also released their own endorsements for these candidates.

The Chamber PAC prides itself on being one of the most sought after, bipartisan endorsements in Michigan and regularly endorses candidates with the potential to represent the regional business community. Calley has been a dependable leader in the issues that matter to businesses, such as Detroit’s municipal bankruptcy, during his time as Lieutenant Governor under Gov. Snyder. Whitmer’s understanding of infrastructure investment and her plan to improve Michigan’s education system make her the best Democratic candidate to support the Chamber’s priorities.

Additional primary election endorsements by the Chamber’s PAC include: Sen. Ian Conyers (D-MI13), Rep. Tim Greimel (D-MI11), Sen. Mike Kowall (R-MI11), and Andy Levin (D-MI9) for the U.S. House of Representatives, and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) for the U.S. Senate. View the full list of the PAC’s endorsed candidates.
