A2: Governor’s Race

Detroit Free Press columnist Michael Rosenberg rants about the common practice of robo-calls during the election season, in the context of the governor’s race. He notes that Democrat Virg Bernero will be facing Republican Rick Snyder of Ann Arbor: “How they found a Republican in Ann Arbor, I have no idea. This is a town where people make voting decisions based on the size of the tree on the candidate’s placard. In the primary season, Snyder’s campaign slogan was ‘One Tough Nerd,’ although experts say that vote-for-the-nerd thing will be a tough sell against a man named Virg.” [Source]
