|Description||Michigan Republicans have halted their efforts to recall state Democratic lawmakers, a spokesman said today. |
Stu Sandler, a consultant to the Michigan GOP who was organizing more than a dozen recall campaigns against Democrats, said the decision was made after discussions with Gov. Rick Snyder and other party leaders.
“We met our strategic goals,” Sandler said. “We spent a minimal amount of money and gained thousands of contacts” and “I think the Democrats were clearly on the defensive.”
Sandler got recall language approved against six state Democratic lawmakers and was facing a Nov. 28 deadline to file the required signatures.
