After months of “exploring” a run for Michigan governor, former union leader Gregory Wynn officially entered the race Tuesday.
Wynn is positioning himself as the most progressive candidate in the race, championing a higher minimum wage and state action on universal health coverage, among other policies.
“I’m inspired by the hundreds of working people I’ve listened to across Michigan who are ready to rise up for a $15 minimum wage, expanded union rights, universal health care, clean water and fully-funded public education,” he said in a statement Tuesday. “Michigan workers who are struggling to make it are demanding a seat at the table in 2018. They’re not going to let the politicians ignore them anymore.”
