Andy LaBarre, here with wife Megan and their dogs, was endorsed by Planned Parenthood for County Commissioner.Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan announces endorsements
In an email sent Friday morning, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan announced its endorsements for offices ranging from President down to County Commissioner. Eleven of the candidates will be on the primary ballot in Washtenaw County this coming Tuesday. A twelfth, President Barack Obama, will be on the ballot in November.My one unanswered question is what did the incumbent Democratic Sheriff of Washtenaw County do to piss off Planned Parenthood?
The candidates endorsed by the advocacy arm of Planned Parenthood of Michigan include Debbie Stabenow for U.S. Senate, John Dingell for the 12th Congressional District, Gretchen Driskell, Jeff Irwin, David Rutledge, and Adam Zemke for Michigan House, Lawrence Kestenbaum for County Clerk, Jeffrey Gallatin for Sheriff, and Andy LaBarre, Yousef Rabhi, and Conan Smith for County Commissioner.
Gallatin is one of only three Republicans throughout Michigan endorsed by the pro-choice organization and the sole endorsed Republican running in Washtenaw County. All the other candidates who met with Planned Parenthood Advocates' approval are Democrats.
