Griffin endorsed by The Jackson Citizen Patriot
The Jackson Citizen Patriot endorsed Rep. Martin Griffin, D-Jackson, for the vacant state Senate seat in the 19th District that includes Jackson and Calhoun Counties.
The editorial board got it right on the lies put out by Republican opponent in the constant barrage of TV commercials, saying “In contrast to the advertising against him, Griffin has always projected an image of predictable (if sometimes prickly) moderation.
The editorial board was very polite in calling the GOP opponent what he is, instead saying, “The lines of reasoning in the anti-Griffin advertising are that he is a tax-and-spend liberal, a supporter of a lavish state police headquarters and a sugar daddy for Detroit. These claims are misleading.”
I’ll be a little more direct that the newspaper; they are outright lies, and that says all you need to know about the Republican opponent.
