The Corner

The one and only.



Voting John Engler for Michigan governor in 1990 is probably the best vote I’ve cast–he won narrowly, in a huge upset, and went on to become an excellent chief executive. My first NRO article of the New Year tried to summarize his accomplishments after three terms in office. Occasional NRO contributor Lawrence Reed of the Mackinac Center just sent me the link to his own appraisal, which appeared a week earlier in the Detroit News. Definitely worth reading–and a good reminder that Engler, despite a few quirks (such as his outspoken support for an Internet sales tax), has been a GOP all-star.
