Michigan AG candidates slinging mud

Oct 8, 2018

ANN ARBOR, MI (MPRN)--   There’s one more month for Michigan’s combative Attorney General race.

Democrat Dana Nessel and Republican Tom Leonard have been trading shots at each other for weeks.

Nessel and Leonard

Nessel ties Leonard to drug companies and corporate polluters.  Leonard’s campaign has implied Nessel has protected sexual abusers and is “unfit” for office because she allegedly mistreated her campaign staff.

Yet Leonard says he doesn’t think the race has been “nasty.”

“At least from our campaign, I would not say it’s nasty. I would say they we have certainly revealed a lot truth that’s out there that citizens need to know,” he says.

Nessel says the Republicans are taking shots at her because their own campaign is “flailing.”

A poll last month found Nessel leading Leonard.
