Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and GOP challenger Tudor Dixon on Tuesday clashed over abortion, infrastructure, public schools, and COVID-19 vaccine mandate in their second and final debate before the Nov. 8 election. Dixon and Whitmer squared off over the effects of Proposal 3 on the ballot that would enshrine the right to abortion access in the state constitution during the first question of their debate. Dixon said she would stand with parents who oppose pornography in schools, while Whitmer claimed that it was Republicans’ attempt to tear communities apart. Both candidates opposed COVID-19 vaccine mandate for kids to attend school.
