Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) has urged residents to support Michigan businesses amid her ongoing lockdown orders, but her campaign sent a mailing printed in and sent from Wisconsin.
The Detroit Free Press reported:
The fundraising plea arrived at many Michigan households Tuesday with an envelope showing Whitmer at a construction site and the words: “Fixing the Damn Road Ahead — Together.” Whitmer campaigned in 2018 on a pledge to “fix the damn roads.”
Markings on the envelope and the printed materials inside show the postage was paid by Advanced Mail, a marketing company in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and the materials were also printed in Wisconsin, at a union shop.
A campaign spokesman claimed it was all just one big misunderstanding.
“The Whitmer for Governor campaign has always worked closely with union- and Michigan-based printers, and will continue to do so in the future,” campaign spokesman Christopher Mills told
