James Craig says he’s ‘running,’ launches committee for Michigan governor

By The Detroit News, July 22, 2021

Lansing —For the first time, Republican James Craig, the former Detroit police chief, described himself as “running” for Michigan governor Wednesday night after launching an exploratory committee earlier in the day.

Craig, who retired June 1 after working more than four decades in law enforcement, is seen by many in the GOP as the early favorite to win the party’s nomination to challenge Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2022. A formal announcement of a campaign for governor with events and rallies will likely occur after Labor Day, a statement announcing the formation of the Chief James Craig for Governor Exploratory Committee said.

However, during an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, Craig said he was “running” and planned to hold Whitmer accountable.

“We’re part of a movement,” Craig told Carlson. “We are going to take the state back.”

The new committee will allow him to raise and spend money to advance his bid, something he hasn’t been able to do over the last two months as he’s openly considered a jump into politics. Craig has made a string of appearances on Fox News, met privately with GOP leaders and given two public speeches at Republican events.

Wednesday’s press release said the new committeewas the first step toward formally launching Craig’s campaign. The former chief also unveiled a video titled “Leading from the Front,” announced an upcoming listening tour and debuted a website, chiefjamescraig.com.

“I led as chief of police — and began my life — on the streets of Detroit,” Craig said in the statement. “Now it is time to travel the state, and visit other communities.

“I will be talking with law enforcement, hosting small business roundtables, and meeting with voters in their homes to hear about the negative impact the current governor’s policies are having on their communities, their workplaces and their families.”
