Top cop going after Michigan Governor Whitmer. Detroit police chief may be running for governor. It looks as if the police chief of Detroit is looking to run for governor. He’s articulate, street smart, Republican and he’s black. What a dynamic combination.
We have this from Politico.
While Craig, a Detroit native who has been police chief since 2013, has said that police officers should be held “accountable for violating their oath and breaking the law,” he has also been an outspoken defender of law enforcement. He sharply criticized Detroit-area Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib after she tweeted in April that “policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist,” and there should be “no more policing.”
Craig will start his first campaign with a higher public profile in Detroit. Before he was named police chief there in 2013, he had served as chief of the Cincinnati and Portland, Maine police departments, according to his official biography. He also served decades as a police officer in Los Angeles.
