Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig announced Wednesday night that he will be running for governor in the 2022 election.
Craig made the announcement on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", saying, "I'm running."
Earlier Wednesday, an exploratory committee was formed to allow Craig to begin raising and spending money.
The announcement comes after Craig visited Grand Rapids on Monday, teasing a possible run for governor at the Kent GOP office. He delivered a speech slamming Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and encouraging young people to vote Republican.
Craig's campaign says official events and rallies are likely to begin after Labor Day.
