Lansing, MIPosted byThe Saginaw News
After Dana Nessel won the Attorney General race in 2018, she got a note from incoming House Speaker Lee Chatfield congratulating her. She thought it was sarcastic. Nessel had built her political brand as a tireless LGBT advocate and a progressive Democrat. Chatfield, R-Levering, was a conservative Republican who had gotten to Lansing by challenging an opponent who proposed extending civil rights to LGBT people.
