Detroit News: DeVos declines to be specific on economic plan
Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos on Thursday criticized Gov. Jennifer Granholm for being long on rhetoric and short on specifics, then declined to say what he would do to improve the economy or where he stood on embryonic stem cell research or raising the minimum wage.

"If good rhetoric resulted in job growth, we'd probably be first in the country; instead we're last," he said during the taping of public television's "Off the Record" program.

DeVos, who opposes abortion, said he supports research done with adult stem cells but needs more time to consider whether he backs research done with embryonic stem cells, something the Catholic church opposes.

"It does get very close to ethical concerns," DeVos said.
