    The Spin

    Democratic narrative

    Dixon is a threat to Michigan not only due to her reactionary agenda but also to her ties with political insiders and donor interests. Unlike Gov. Whitmer, she will not pursue the best interests of the people. Dixon has also proved to be dangerous to democracy by supporting Trump's false and debunked election fraud claims.

    Republican narrative

    Families have chosen Dixon to change Michigan for the better and to make up for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's disastrous administration during the past four years. The GOP nominee will improve education, city safety, and businesses. Michiganders want to be part of a family-friendly, business-friendly state.
