94th State House Primary: Establishment Pick Rodney Wakeman Donated $500 To Granholm, Didn't Support A Republican Until Last Year

Rodney Wakeman wants to replace Tim Kelly in the State House, but West Michigan Politics has discovered Wakeman has seemingly never donated to a Republican candidate before last year, despite donating to Jennifer Granholm during the "lost decade."

Wakeman donated to State Rep. Ben Frederik last year, apparently his first time giving to a Republican.

Years ago however, Wakeman donated $500 to Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

Wakeman is being supported by all the establishment stalwarts in the Saginaw area, like former State Sen. Roger Kahn...

Wakeman is currently in a heated race with Steve Gerhardt, the conservative grassroots favorite.

The news of Wakeman's donation is sure to give Gerhardt a boost in the final days before August 7th.

  1. This does concern me. Might also explain why at our republican candidate forum (with all 3 candidates) Mr. Wakeman abstained from taking a position on some very key issues that conservative Republicans care about. He answered that he would let the people decide issues like: term limits, convention of states, tax hikes, and others. He wouldn’t say if he would vote yes or no on the 4 millages for Saginaw County. When I vote for a candidate to represent me, I want to know how he or she THINKS on issues. Rodney had no positions. I guess now I know why!
