A Republican governor hunting for votes in Detroit might as well wear a blindfold. The city is so loyally Democratic that 60 percent of voters just walk into the booth, yank the donkey’s tail and walk out.
But there was Rick Snyder Thursday, on Jefferson Ave., opening a campaign office in a city that gave him less than 6 percent of its ballots in 2010. Why bother?
“Because they’re citizens of Michigan,” the governor says. “I campaigned in Detroit in the Republican primary in 2009, even though a lot of people told me I was crazy.”
