LANSING, May 20, 2022 ~ Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig and businessman Perry Johnson have not filed enough signatures to qualify for the gubernatorial Republican primary, according to reports from the Michigan Bureau of Elections.

This is the responsibility of these candidates,” said The Detroit News State and Government Reporter Craig Mauger to 760 WJR‘s Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz. “If you look through the information that the Bureau of Elections has put out there, some of these sheets that were submitted are stunningly obvious forgeries … it’s the same handwriting, you can see it clearly.”

If the Bureau’s findings stand, five of the 10 candidates who made submissions for the election will not end up on the ballot.

The candidate who comes out on top of the August 2 Republican primary will face Governor Whitmer on the November ballot.

Listen below as Mauger tells Tom and Kevin how this could affect the Michigan GOP‘s chances this fall.
