Dixon Chooses Hernandez As Running Mate

Former Rep. Shane Hernandez has been chosen as Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon’s running mate.

The candidate announced her pick today to Michigan Republican Party leadership, which was due at 5 p.m.

In a statement, Ms. Dixon said Mr. Hernandez “will help to improve our schools, create safer communities, and improve our economy.”

“Like me, Shane is concerned about the impact rising prices are having on our families,” she said. “Shane and I will put front-and-center the issues families care about: rising costs created by the Democrats’ inflation, dangerous communities exacerbated by Gretchen Whitmer’s siding with the ‘spirit’ of defund the police, and a perpetually weak economy that Gretchen Whitmer is simply incapable of doing anything about. I am confident delegates will embrace Shane and united, we will defeat Gretchen Whitmer in November.”

In a statement also circulated by Ms. Dixon’s campaign, Mr. Hernandez said he was honored to be selected and was ready “to address the problems created by Gretchen Whitmer.”

“Her vision is the right one for Michigan and I believe we will defeat Whitmer and begin to repair the damage she’s caused to our families, students, and business owners,” he added.

Now that a name has been submitted to the party, it is up to the delegates to decide during the upcoming August 27 convention. That may or may not result in a fight on the convention floor, depending on whether the delegates jive with Ms. Dixon’s choice.
