“This past Friday, I was humbled to receive the personal endorsement of Randy Bishop, a well-known conservative radio show host in northern Michigan. While I identify as a democrat, my tenure in the House of Representatives has never been about one party. My campaign for state senate has never been about one party. I have a proven voting record, I’ve worked with folks across the aisle and I have garnered support from all sides because I represent the people of the Upper Peninsula first over any party. To see that folks are trying to silence Randy’s first amendment right to personally endorse the candidates he believes will best represent the people of this state is appalling. If we truly want to help business grow and people thrive, we need to put the people first over party politics.
