Republican gubernatorial candidate James Craig says he has enough support in Detroit to stop Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s chances of taking the city in this year’s election.

If true, it could be the first time in recent memory that a Republican candidate is making a serious play for the Black vote in a city that has long remained Democrat’s largest and most loyal voting base in the state.
