LANSING, August 1, 2022 ~ Former President Donald Trump announced his endorsement of Tudor Dixon for Michigan Governor in the final days before the Michigan primary election, though her opponents downplayed the move, with some changing their ads to go against Dixon instead of incumbent Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

If you look at education, we are 38th in the nation, but we are on the trajectory to be in the bottom five states in the nation by 2030…We can improve that if we do something right now,” said Tudor Dixon to 760 WJR‘s Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz. “We have three of the most dangerous cities in America, in the state right now, so we have the opportunity to come around our law enforcement and support them. And job creators…whatever their business is, we want to support them, as a state government come around them instead of attacking them.”
