Ruth Johnson to be Amway Guy's running mate.

Update: Check out the discussion about this over at the Freep.

Just saw it on the MIRS website.



Currently Oakland County Clerk; Bio from the 2001-02 Michigan Manual:

Republican, of Holly; born January 8, 1955; lifelong resident of northern Oakland County; associate degree, Oakland Community College; bachelor’s degree, Oakland University; master’s degree, Wayne State University; married to Don Nanney; one daughter; former small business owner; served 10 years as an Oakland County commissioner, 6 years as vice chair; member, Republican National Party, Michigan Association of Republican County Officials, Michigan Republican Party; member, Lake Louise and Tipsico Lake Improvement boards; Aging and Social Services chair, and Mental Health committee member, Michigan Association of Counties; member, Clarkston Chamber of Commerce, Highland Business Association, American Business Women’s Association; charter member, Holly Area Optimists; elected to the House of Representatives, 1998, reelected 2000; chair, House GOP Policy Committee; Assistant Majority Caucus Whip.
Instant analysis: Okay, so maybe me picking Butler was just wishful thinking on my part. I couldn't wait to start writing posts about the Amway billionaire and the million dollar preacher. Damn.

So what does Amway Guy get from Ruth Johnson? I suppose gender and geography balance. But really it's not like anyone is going to pay any attention. In the Gannett-era apocalypse state media environment, it's hard enough to find out anything about the candidates for governor, let alone LG. But hey! - at least we have a new disembodied head to talk about!

...she fits the profile that allows Devos to keep HIS momentum without throwing in a side story of someone like Butler overshadowing Dick himself....plus she is a relatively unknown female from the east side of the state....

Need confirmation of... (0.00 / 0)
... her parents names (with middle name/initial).

Thanks.


You know what this means? (4.00 / 3)
The Republican statewide ticket won't be Ruthless.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Dick and Johnson (4.00 / 3)
So the Dick has picked a Johnson for running mate.

Oh the fun we could have.

Not to mention Cox (4.00 / 3)
How could I forget Mike Cox?

The party that impeached Clinton over a stain on a blue dress will end up nominating a Dick, a Johnson, and a Cox!

Saul Anus Sounds Happy to Have The Dick and a Johnson to compensate for his little Cox (4.00 / 1)
What a well rounded ticket! Talk to anyone who has ever dealth with Ruthless, she is one dour, mean, humorless lady. The Dick got the person most like his mean old lady Betsy, Michigan Workers are Paid too much, DeVos. Dick may have picked an attack dog, but Ruth is rabid. There is a story among some reporters that Brooks tried to talk The Dick out of picking Ruth. Interesting that Secretary Land was not quoted in any of the press accounts I have seen so far. Maybe Ms. Land took Ruthless Ruth's tough criticism on voting irregularities personally? 

conflict of interest? (0.00 / 0)
Is she going to stay a Clerk?  Would that mean that she still has some power over the way that votes are counted?
