"Don’t Fall for Her Opponent’s Misleading Rhetoric - Our Democracy and Our Rights Are on the Line"

Lansing, MICHIGAN — Following last night’s gubernatorial debate in Michigan, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) - the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer civil rights organization - reaffirmed their support for Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s reelection.

Human Rights Campaign Michigan State Director Amritha Venkataraman released the following statement:

Last night Governor Gretchen Whitmer stood for all Michiganders, while her opponent peddled lies about Proposal 3, spread anti-LGBTQ+ propaganda, and still failed to accept the results of the 2020 election. Instead of dividing Michiganders, Whitmer is focused on issues like the economy, fixing the damn roads, and advancing our K-12 education - it’s why we urge all Michigan voters to support her re-election on November 8th. Don’t fall for her opponent’s misleading rhetoric - our democracy and our rights are on the line.
