Affirmative Action Proposal

By  | 

The GOP candidate for governor and the front runner in the race for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination have both come out against the ballot proposal to ban affirmative action. Candidates Dick DeVos and Keith Butler say the proposal goes too far and will restrict the rights of minorities and others.

Rep. Leon Drolett who favors the ballot proposal tells News 10 a majority of Michigan voters support the ban and the fact that DeVos and Butler don't may be a reflection on their misunderstanding of what the amendment does.

A spokesperson for the coalition opposing the plan says once voters read it, they will vote no.
