Republican Candidate ARRESTED During Election!
(RepublicanDaily.org) – The events of January 6, 2021, continue to cast a long shadow over American politics. The Democrat-dominated House Select Committee investigating the incident has recently been grabbing headlines for its televised hearings, with many speculating the panel will now move to try to criminally charge former President Donald Trump. In Michigan, another political candidate is in legal trouble over his involvement in proceedings that fateful day.
On Thursday, June 9, FBI agents arrested Ryan Kelley, a Republican candidate in Michigan’s upcoming gubernatorial election. The arrest was based on four charges related to Kelley’s attendance at the Capitol Building on January 6 last year.
Prior to his arrest, the candidate was performing strongly in the polls. He’s running on a conservative platform focused on election security, critical race theory, and abortion, among other issues. Kelley has been strongly critical of controversial incumbent Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D). His removal may give her a clear shot to retain her position.
Other conservatives in the race have spoken in Kelley’s defense since this news broke. Kevin Rinke, another candidate fiercely opposed to the policies of the Michigan governor, tweeted in support of the candidate.
I respect Ryan Kelley and have met him out on the trail. My hope is that the FBI is acting appropriately, because the timing here raises serious questions. Praying for him and his family. https://t.co/h8vER5T2R1

Do you think it’s worth questioning the timing of this arrest? Might the FBI be seeking to protect Gretchen Whitmer from a tough election battle by taking Ryan Kelley out of the picture?
