Protestors surround James Craig during announcement to run for MI governor
Former Detroit police chief says protests were not accidental, demands Gov. Whitmer be held accountable
Former Detroit police chief James Craig appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss his campaign for Michigan governor.
On Tuesday, Craig announced his candidacy for governor of Michigan. However, his announcement was mobbed by several protesters attempting to shout him down, something Craig claimed is familiar.
“I know them very well, Tucker. I know them very well. Summer of Love 2020 they made it home in Detroit. They were disruptive, no surprises there. But I’ve got to tell you, they want to silence me. They wanted me to leave Detroit last year. I said, ‘most of you need to leave.’ These folks are from outside the city. And they come in here, and they’re not speaking for anybody in the city,” Craig said.
Craig originally announced his campaign to unseat Whitmer in July. In the past, he has denounced Democratic leaders who he feels have failed to protect their neighborhoods from criminals.
“They are protecting the criminals,” he said. “And you know what’s sad, they are not talking to victims, to families. those people who live in vulnerable neighborhoods who need the police. They don’t care about that. They care more about these criminals.”
