Republicans replace Wayne State candidate after snafu
DETROIT (AP) — The Michigan Republican Party replaced a candidate for the Wayne State University governing board after she was disqualified for failing to pay a campaign fee related to the 2018 election.
Terri Lynn Land, a former secretary of state, will be on the fall ballot instead of Diane Dunaskiss.
Dunaskiss’ campaign committee apparently owed $1,000 tied to campaign finance reporting from her run for the Wayne State board two years ago. The balance disqualifies her from the 2020 ballot, election officials said.
Dunaskiss said it was a “minor campaign finance oversight” but acknowledged the consequences Thursday.
She was hoping to return to the Wayne State board after serving on it for 24 years before her defeat in 2018.
