Without naming Agema, Snyder urges more civility
Question of the Day
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has used his State of the State speech to level a half-veiled criticism of anti-gay and anti-Muslim remarks by Michigan Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema.
Snyder said Thursday night that Michigan needs “a greater degree of civility” in politics. He says people should “work to bring Michiganders together, not divide” them.
The Republican governor didn’t specifically mention Agema, who says gays want public health care because they’re dying of AIDS and who’s questioned Muslims’ commitment to charity.
Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says the governor means the statement for “anyone who engages in discriminatory talk or behavior, including recent days and months.”
The Associated Press left a Facebook message for Agema seeking comment Thursday night.
