Citing His Determination To Continue Michigan’s Economic Comeback, Major Business Groups Endorse Bill Schuette For Governor

Bill Schuette’s growing support from business leaders further shows his commitment to continuing Michigan’s economic comeback.

Per The RGA:

Republican nominee Bill Schuette is proving that he is the only gubernatorial candidate committed to improving Michigan’s business climate and continuing the state’s economic success.

This week, Schuette’s campaign received the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business and numerous other Michigan business leaders, who hailed Schuette as the “right leader to build on accelerating Michigan’s path to becoming a top 10 state” for business.

As he campaigns to become Michigan’s paycheck governor, Bill Schuette’s growing support from business leaders further shows his commitment to continuing Michigan’s economic comeback.

Crain's Detroit Business has more:

Business Leaders for Michigan’s political action committee endorsed Republican Bill Schuette for governor Wednesday, saying that the attorney general is more closely aligned with the group’s economic proposals than Democrat Gretchen Whitmer.

The support from BLM is one of three major endorsements Schuette snagged this week from business groups, which have predominantly favored Schuette over Whitmer, a former Democratic state senator.

The Michigan Manufacturers Association and the National Federation of Independent Business also backed Schuette this week, joining a coalition of business groups that includes the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Michigan Restaurant Association and the Small Business Association of Michigan.

Leaders with the groups cited Schuette’s record on taxes and business regulation for their support of Schuette over Whitmer, who has led in recent polls.

‘We think Bill Schuette is the right leader to build on accelerating Michigan’s path to becoming a top 10 state,’ said Tim Sowton, vice president of government affairs and public policy for Business Leaders for Michigan.

The endorsements from BLM, NFIB and the manufactures association leaves the Detroit Regional Chamber as the last major business group in Michigan that has yet to make an endorsement in the governor’s race.

The Detroit chamber’s PAC board has a meeting scheduled for Oct. 17 to discuss a gubernatorial endorsement, said Brad Williams, vice president of government relations for the Detroit Regional Chamber.
