Entrepreneur Shri Thanedar (D) “is touting his career as a scientist in the first TV ad of the Michigan governor’s race.”

“The 30-second ad, which will debut Tuesday — eight months before the August primary — introduces Thanedar as a scientist-chemist who worked on cures and medicines ignored by ‘big drug companies’ and as a backer of a single-payer health care system. It calls” President Trump “a ‘climate change denier’ and” term-limited Gov. Rick Snyder (R) “an accountant ‘who brought us the Flint drinking water crisis.’” (AP)

ACTION ITEM. Former state Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D) “on Friday joined a chorus of people calling for an independent investigation of how Michigan State University handled allegations that one of its star doctors [Larry Nassar] sexually abused women.” (Lansing State Journal)
