Dr. Jim Hines pulled no punches addressing Attotney General Schuette's latest proposal regarding debates in the Republican race for Governor.

Hines, a Doctor from the Saginaw area, tells MIRS he was baffled by Schuette's announcement.

"I can't believe he's saying this with a straight face. It was like this was a fresh idea of his that we have some debates. There's like a split personality here. Wow."

At the same time as Schuette said 3 was the magic number, the Michigan Republican Party proposed four televised debates.

Hines, along with State Senator Patrick Colbeck and Lt. Governor Brian Calley have already held 7 debates, Schuette has refused to attend.

Brandon Hall is a lifelong political nerd from Grand Haven, and is the Managing Editor of West Michigan Politics.

  1. Schutte's still going to win. The only reason he hasn't attended was because he has such a lead. Not a Schutte fan, I'm just sayin.
