METRO TIMES — Halftime score (for Granholm)

Halftime score

After setbacks of last November,
Granholm is repositioning

“Other results from Granholm’s (2004) Election Day were even more distracting. A ballot initiative to establish a constitutional ban on gay marriage, which she aggressively opposed, passed easily. Even Wayne County, her base, overwhelmingly approved the ban. A second ballot initiative, to allow voters to restrict the number of casinos in Detroit and elsewhere, also passed by a huge margin statewide and in the city. The winning margin was particularly telling for Granholm because she had joined Republican Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who’s not seen as any friend to Detroit, in opposing the initiative.”
