Michigan Election Information

In the 2016 election, Clinton lost in Michigan by 0.2% (10,700 votes) in a nearly evenly split electorate.  However, in the State House, Republicans control 57% of the seats while in the State Senate, Republicans control a staggering 71% of the seats. The Republican Trifecta in Michigan since 2010 has led to significant corrupt gerrymandering and voter suppression, entrenching Republicans in power. If you are a Democrat in Michigan, you are NOT being represented in your State House or Senate. November 2018 is your chance to right the imbalance and bring fairness back into Michigan politics before the 2020 census redistricting.

State House – Margins of Victory

All 110 districts in the House are up for reelection in November 2018 for two-year terms. Four districts were won by Clinton in 2016 that are currently occupied by a Republican (only 2 will have incumbents running). 8 districts were lost by Clinton but won by a Democrat.  The Democrats need to pick up 9 seats to regain the majority.

Minnesota: Sold to the Highest Bidder

Privatization that has become increasingly common across states is a result of the outsized power that one constituency—corporate interests—has to influence legislation. But corporations, whose primary motive is profit, don’t necessarily consider the societal costs of their actions. We need a society that benefits the majority, not just a few wealthy individuals and corporations.

The American Legislative Exchange Council, commonly referred to as ALEC, and controlled by a few wealthy individuals and corporations, has had a huge impact on laws passed within the states. Its impact comes from writing “model” legislation, which is then given to lawmakers who sponsor it. This has resulted in nearly identical bills being passed in many different states. more …

Minnesota: Roads to Ruin

Minnesota’s roads are vital infrastructure that allows personal and commercial traffic to operate safely and efficiently. These same roads and highways, however, are decaying rapidly due to years of being underfunded. Ignoring a problem does not make it simply go away, yet the Republican-controlled state House seems to think it will. The Legislature controls the purse strings for the state’s transportation system. It is apparent that this goal cannot be met as long as the Republicans control the Legislature. more …
