Rick Snyder's grand ploy to punt a decision to voters on whether to raise Michigan's sales tax to fund road repairs — something the governor's pushed for nearly there years now — just hit a pothole of its own: The entire team of political consultants hired to concoct a campaign to win voter approval hast quit, according to a report from The Detroit News' Chad Livengood

One of the consultants involved told Livengood the team — which consisted of Lansing-based PR firm Truscott Rossman, pollster for the News, Richard Czuba, as well as a Democratic political advertising company — said the bi-partisan crew had, get ready for this, "philosophical differences" with Snyder's office. 

"I wish the governor well in his efforts to pass it," the consultant told Livengood. 

Lansing-based news service Gongwer says Lansing-based PR firm Martin Waymire and political consultant firm WWP have been passed the baton. Michigan, you may recall, has been talking about fixing it's dilapidated road system forever
