The aforementioned Glengariff poll (see Michigan Senate above) finds Democratic nominee Gretchen Whitmer, a former state House Minority Leader, jumping out to a double-digit lead over Attorney General Bill Schuette (R) in the state’s open Governor’s race. According to the poll, Ms. Whitmer leads, 50-36%. The Michigan Governor’s race is critical from a national redistricting perspective, and it’s clear that Mr. Schuette has his work cut out for him if he is to restore Republican chances to continue presiding in this state as they have done for the past 20 of the last 28 years.
