The official Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the University of Michigan will host the second Presidential Debate of the 2020 general election on Oct. 15. This is the first Presidential Debate in Michigan since 1992. Michigan went red in a Presidential election for the first time since 1988 in 2016 with President Trump’s victory in the Great Lakes State.

“The radical left in Michigan, led at the state level by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, have been using children with autism, charter school students, and rural healthcare services as pawns to increase the gas tax. With a presidential debate in our state next year, this appalling political gamesmanship will be brought to attention at the national level with the increased focus on Michigan,” said Tori Sachs, executive director of Michigan Rising Action. “Policies in Michigan being driven by a divisive radical left in the governor’s office and in Congress will now have an increased role in national conversations. All Americans will see the policies spread by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Representatives Tlaib, Stevens, and Slotkin as a warning of what can happen when the radical left takes over a political party.”
