  •  Michigan (none)
    None of the state senators were up for re-election this year, but the sntire state house was.  Previously the GOP held a 63-46 advantage in the Michigan House, but that has fallen back to a 58-52 split, exactly were it had been prior to 5 GOP pick-ups in 2002.  Let's hope that this is the start of a steady trend to a Dem majority.

    The GOP has already announced that Michigan is going to be a primary battleground in 2006, with both Gov. Granholm and Sen. Stabenow being targeted with an anti-values campaign.  The state GOP leader has come right out and said that Republicans will succeed if they ride the same values platform that got President Bush (re-)elected.

    •  Granholm (none)
      She obviously sees them coming.  From today's NYT:

      Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm, Democrat of Michigan, said that in order to be competitive with Republicans, Democrats had to have a message that was "strong and strongly pro-work, pro-responsibility, pro-duty, pro-service, pro-child, pro-seniors."

      "And not to be afraid of saying God," Ms. Granholm said. "And not to be afraid of saying that this is a country that is based upon faith."
