    Their sweep of statewide offices in 2010 allowed them to effectively gerrymander the state, to the point that while more voters voted Democratic, Republicans barely lost any seats in the state house, and retain a supermajority in the state senate. US Senator Debbie Stabenow (D) won re-election by 21 points.

      The GOP took control of the statehouse & governors mansion, then gerrymandered the districts to assure permanent GOP control.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
