Former State Assemblyman Hernandez named Dixon’s running mate

LANSING, Michigan (WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS) – Tudor Dixon, Republican nominee for governor of Michigan, has selected her running mate.

dixon announced Friday afternoon that former Port Huron State Assemblyman Shane Hernandez is her pick for Lieutenant Governor.

“As Lieutenant Governor Shane Hernandez will help improve our schools, create safer communities and improve our economy. Like me, Shane is concerned about the impact rising prices will have on our families,” Dixon said.

Hernandez was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in 2016 and served two terms, including as Speaker of the House, before running for Congress in 2020. According to Dixon, he now works in the private sector.

“Shane and I will prioritize the issues that concern families: rising costs caused by Democrat inflation, dangerous communities exacerbated by Gretchen Whitmer’s partisanship with the ‘ghost’ to disappoint the police , and a persistently weak economy that Gretchen Whitmer is simply unable to do anything about,” Dixon said. “I am confident that the delegates will embrace Shane and united, we will defeat Gretchen Whitmer in November.”

Hernandez is a conservative Republican who believes in limited government, financial accountability and individual liberties, Dixon said.

“I’m honored to be running as Tudor’s running mate to address the issues created by Gretchen Whitmer,” Hernandez said. “Her vision is right for Michigan and I believe we will defeat Whitmer and begin to undo the damage she has done to our families, students and business owners.”

A source close to Garrett Soldano, the Mattawan chiropractor whom Dixon defeated in the Aug. 2 primary, told News 8 Friday that Soldano was considering seeking the lieutenant governor nomination at the upcoming GOP conference in Michigan. The source said Soldano’s final decision will be made in the coming days.
