I read the memoirs of Michigan governor candidates so you don’t have to
Schuette does as good a job as any of his critics of portraying himself as a blueblood Republican and career politician.
Schuette is now touting the endorsement of President Donald Trump, but the 2015 memoir was released before the New York City businessman won the Republican nomination by lambasting its establishment leaders.
Schuette’s book details his stint as a campaign worker and driver for future president George H.W. Bush in the 1970s and relationships with GOP all-stars including former President Gerald Ford, beltway insider James Baker, Amway founder Richard DeVos Sr. and former U.S. Rep. Dave Camp.
And yes, he got the political itch early: His slogan, “Schuette on Duty,” was first used in an elementary school student council campaign. (Bridge Michigan)
