Michigan Republican candidates for governor are not being asked the right question

Lansing -- The Republican race for governor is a three-man contest two weeks before the Aug. 3 primary.

There's a virtual tie between U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Holland and state Attorney General Mike Cox, followed closely by Ann Arbor businessman Rick Snyder, according to a Detroit News-Local 4 WDIV poll.

There's more to being governor of Michigan than talking about what you want to do.

You have to be able to get it done.

And none of the Republican candidates to be our state's governor have talked about their skills to accomplish their goals.

What does that mean? They can only get done as much as the legislature will let them do.

You have to sell the Michigan Legislature and you have to get 148 people to agree with you. These are folks who have their own ideas and their own sense of self-importance.

What's the right question? How will you convince a majority of state lawmakers to cut taxes and reduce spending?

I've not seen one talk about it.

Their answers are important. Believe me.
