WARREN, Mich. (FOX 2) – The race for the Republican ticket for the Michigan gubernatorial race is yet to be decided, but the field is narrowed to five and on Thursday they will debate Warren.
Macomb County is hosting its gubernatorial debate Thursday night at the Royalty House Banquet Facility on 13 Mile Road in Warren.
The five who are currently on the main ticket will all be present for the debate and includes Tudor Dixon, Ryan Kelley, Ralph Rebandt, Kevin Rinke and Garret Soldano.
Five leading candidates, including James Craig and Perry Johnson, were blocked from voting after signatures turned out to be fraudulent.
On Thursday night, the candidates each rang, including the replies from Roe State v. Wade overturned by SCOTUS, Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s lockdown policies during the pandemic, critical race theory in schools, 2020 election issues and more.
Charlie Langton is the moderator, while the panelists who asked the questions are Detroit Free Press columnist ML Elrick and 100PercentFedUp.com author Patty McMurray.
The debate is one of the most important of the year and it is the first time that the five candidates will all be on stage together. While they may agree on some topics, they will not agree on all.
