Walberg victory prompts founding of Republicans for Granholm

Tim Walberg's Aug. 8 Republican primary victory over U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz has prompted a pro-Gov. Jennifer Granholm group of Republicans to form.
Republicans for Granholm was founded this week by Gil Ziegler, a former Republican Candidate for U.S. Congress and John Engler appointee to the Northern Michigan University board of trustees.
“This was a hard decision,” Ziegler said in a statement.“I’m going to disappoint some people in the Republican party. But, those are the extremists in the party who want to block stem-cell research and who turned out of office a good man like Congressman Joe Schwarz (MI-R 7th district).”
Republicans like Ziegler say they're fed up with religious zealots and special interests buying elections.
Washington, D.C.-based Club for Growth poured over $1 million into Walberg's sound victory over the incumbent Schwarz.
