Former State Rep. Shulman running for Supreme Court

From the Lansing State Journal

Ex- Rep. Shulman to seek court seat

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis announced over the weekend that former state Rep. Marc Shulman will run for the state Supreme Court.

Shulman served in the House from 1999 to 2005, including a stint as chair of the House Appropriations Committee. He's a Cooley Law School graduate.

If Republicans nominate him, he and Justice Maura Corrigan will be the GOP candidates seeking eight-year terms.

Democratic Justice Michael Cavanagh has announced he's running for re-election.


Corrigan's done a good job and will get my vote. I'm undecided on the other race as I don't know who'll be nominated at the convention. I'll back Shulman over Cavanagh though.

Have you ever voted for someone based on their character and merits instead of who the party tells you to vote for dan? I didn’t think so.

Mike Cavanagh was against CPL. That's all I need to know. We don't need any gun grabbers on the court.

No bobdy wants your gun, dan, but you still did not answer my question.

Then Representative Shulman voted against the "shall issue" standard for issuing CCW permits so he is more anti gun then most politicians. So if you are concerned about gun rights Shulman does not deserve your vote, instead just plunk, ie only vote for Corrigan and your vote will be worth twice as much. But you have to realize that most Oakland County Republicans are more anti gun then outstate Democrats. Heck Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, along with his buddies Prosecutor Gorcya and Executive Patterson, were state wide leaders in the anti concealled weapons effort that opposed "shall issue" while Democrats like Jim Barcia is pretty much 100% NRA in the state senate and congress as is John Dingell.

If you are concerned about gun and hunting rights don't foret all the money that Dick DeVos gave to the PETA controlled anti hunting group the Humane Society. The Humane Society, which DeVos has give major contributions too, is leading the charge against dove hunting in Michigan and is strongly anti hunting and anti fishing. Someone needs to call DeVos out on this and ask how he explains his financial support for this anti gun, anti hunting, anti fishing---heck anti Michigan heritage--organization.

The Humane Society takes in unwanted and abandonded animals and gives them care and hope until they get new homes. I'm a hunter, but I still support the humane society. Are you left-wing nuts for real? And Kevin, you never voted Republican in your life, what's the big deal? You voted for Clinton (the rapist, cheating, lying, felon). Good character?? Your standards are way too low.

Which Humane Society? There's local branches which helps pets, and then there is HSUS (federal level). HSUS are the anti-hunters and PETA types led by Wayne Pacelle. A lot of people think that Pacelle's group helps pets, but do nothing to do so - and only lobby to ban hunting and stuff like that.

I am well aware of many Oakland County Republicans and their gun stance, which is why my guard is up when anyone running is East of I-275, South of M-59, and West of Dequindre. That said, from my records (I have all the amendments and final votes) Shulman did vote for CPL. He didn't vote for the bad amendments either. Shulman's not an L Brooks Patterson or David Gorcyca on this issue.

Is Shulman pro-life? I can't seem to remember 100%

I have to double check that.
