Education issues rise to the front of Dixon campaign stops

Michigan gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon speaks to the media after turning in nominating petitions, Tuesday, April 19, 2022 in Lansing, Mich. Ten Republicans have filed petitions to run for governor by the deadline, a record number in recent history, creating a huge field for a primary electorate that will decide who challenges Democrat Gretchen Whitmer. The lineup for the August primary may shrink if election officials find problems with signatures that were submitted.

Michigan gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon speaks to the media

The Republican candidate for Michigan governor hit the campaign trail alongside state officials and some from out of state Friday

During a townhall event, Republican nominee Tudor Dixon hammered her opponents on education and parental rights issues.

An ongoing dispute over books available in Dearborn Public Schools libraries also arose at multiple points throughout the evening. Dixon says she hopes to make inroads within that community.

“We are going to plan an event over there and talk to parents because like I said, I think listening is really important to find out what those communities are looking for, what they need, and I hope that we can earn their vote.”

Earlier in the day, Dixon hosted Arizona Governor Doug Ducey who co-chairs the Republican Governors Association.

She says she’s looking forward to support from him as well.
