Like Bill Schuette, Republican Congressman Mike Bishop has no problem using your tax dollars on himself and his friends

By now it’s no secret that Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette used his office and staff for his own personal work. From working on political operations and promoting his book tour to conducting multi-million dollar real estate transactions and hiring “Republican campaign activists” as staff in his office right before the 2016 campaign began, Bill Schuette appears to view tax […]

In MI-08, Democrat Elissa Slotkin has outraised the GOP incumbent Mike Bishop for 3 cycles WITHOUT corporate PAC money

I first became interested in Democrat Elissa Slotkin’s run to replace the odious Republican Mike Bishop in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District when I watched her amazing ad.

Republican Mike Bishop doesn’t want you to know his stances on guns & unions, quietly scrubs them from his website

It’s well-known that Republican Mike Bishop is deeply embedded in the pockets of the super-wealthy like skabillionaire Matty Moroun so it’ll likely come as no surprise to you that he disdains unions and is all in for gun manufacturers and their corporate front group, the NRA.

Elissa Slotkin in Michigan’s 8th District is showing Democrats how to run a successful campaign for Congress
