Dick and Betsy DeVos, Amway leaders back Mitt Romney in Michigan primary


Dick and Betsy DeVos, Amway leaders back Mitt Romney in Michigan primary

GRAND RAPIDS – Long-time GOP donors Dick and Betsy DeVos lead an Amway-related contingent making a late entry to the Michigan Republican primary in support of Mitt Romney, according to Politico.

Romney, a Michigan native, has enjoyed widespread backing among elected leaders statewide, but the DeVos difference could help -- despite not coming until election day.

In a message obtained by Politico, DeVos and Van Andel family members call Romney “a leader who stands for economic freedom, hope and opportunity.”

It’s unclear to whom the letter went to, but in addition to carrying Dick and Betsy DeVos’ name, it is signed by Amway founder Rich DeVos and his wife, Helen, as well as family members Dan, Pam, Doug and Maria DeVos. Cheri VanderWeide, Dick DeVos’ daughter, also is on the list.

2. Hopefully enough people will have been burned by Amway to make this a negative endorsement

3. This reminds me of the punchline to an old joke about an Evangelical Amway salesman:

"He's easier to program than my VCR!"

4. Just a reminder...

An endorsement by Dick Devos = failure...

Michigan 2006 Governor's Race....

Nominee- Jennifer Granholm Dick DeVos
Party Democratic Republican
Popular vote 2,142,513 1,608,086
Percentage 56.3% 42.3%

Or a 14% point spread. Let's say that Mittens is sure to lose Michigan now!
