  •  In MI the contest to fill retiring Sen. Carl (6+ / 0-)

    Levin's seat is about money and GOTV.  Terri Lynn Land, the former lackluster SOS, has wealthy AFP, Koch and Amway DeVos family money behind her and she has considerable personal wealth.  But Land is a blank billboard that the rightwing can project all of their desires onto.  Gary Peters has his US House record to stand on.  If Dems show up at the polls he will win.  The Dems were in a great position to get turnout with the citizen referendum to raise the minimum wage, but the GOP lege stole their thunder by passing a weak and diluted minimum wage bill in an effort to make the referendum moot.  The backers of the referendum may go to court in order to hold a place on the November ballot.
    The governor has very low approval ratings but could win again if his Dem opponent Mark Schauer doesn't do more to boost his name recognition and political agenda and to GOTV.

    Building a better America with activism, cooperation, ingenuity and snacks.
