It seems former General Motors executive Bob Lutz won’t stick to the auto industry in the immediate future. U.S. News reported last Thursday that Lutz will serve as Michigan Republican governor candidate Patrick Colbeck’s finance chairman.
The Colbeck campaign will task Lutz with fundraising for the current Republican state senator. The report said the campaign had just $13,000 on hand as of this past October.
Lutz is a well-known figure in Michigan and his lengthy career spanned Chrysler, Ford and General Motors. Colbeck said he’s “thrilled” to have Lutz on board to heighten the campaign. The candidate also noted he and Lutz worked together in the past to restore a portion of the former Willow Run Bomber Plant and create a museum.
