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.
