Governor William Miliken

Governor William Milliken is a moderate Republican and served as Michigan's governor from 1969 - 1983. I will always remember him as probably the best Michigan leader in my lifetime. You may remember that Gov. Milliken endorsed John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential Election. His 2004 statement may be found here.

It is worth noting that Bill Milliken served as Governor George Romney's Lieutenant Governor. Which brings us to the subject of Mitt Romney and his run for the Republican nomination for President in the 2008 Election...

In a Chicago Tribune article, Governor Milliken said this about Mitt:

Mitt "brings to mind a line from Groucho Marx: 'These are my principles, and if you don't agree with me, then here, I have some others..."

According to TMP"s Election Central, Governor Milliken is endorsing Senator John McCain in Tuesday's Michigan Republican Presidential Primary.

"I was a great admirer of his father," Milliken told the Detroit News. "But Mitt Romney has been a disappointment to me because he has changed his socially responsible positions he took as governor of Massachusetts. I don't have the respect for him that I had for his father."
