Here a pol, there a pol, everywhere a pol pol(itician)
I’m at the 2012 Michigan Democratic Party Endorsement Convention at the Cobo Center in Detroit where the MDP will choose a host of candidates to appear on the 2012 ballot.
Here are some scenes from the event.
The vendors area doing a brisk business:
Congressman Gary Peters: for the newly-drawn 14th Congressional District.
The Protect Our Jobs table:
Lance Enderle, candidate for Congress in the 8th Congressional District:
Karla Swift, president of the Michigan AFL-CIO giving training on the Protect Our Jobs ballot initiation petition drive:
Shelia Johnson, Bridget Mary McCormack, and Connie Marie Kelley, “The Three Supremes”, a slate of Owen running for the Michigan Supreme Court and endorsed by both the Labor Caucus and Justice Caucus, speaking to the Justice Caucus audience:
Candidate for Congress in the 14th Congressional District and Mayor of Southfield, Brenda Lawrence:
Some scuttlebutt heard during the day:
- Moderate Republican Joe Schwarz is being recruited to run as a Democrat to against Congressman Tim Walberg in the 7th Congressional District (again).
