Guess which Michigan candidates had 6,000+ people rally for them yesterday. HINT: it wasn’t the Republicans.

Guess which Michigan candidates had 6,000+ people rally for them yesterday. HINT: it wasn’t the Republicans.

While Michigan Republican Party chair Bobby Schostak, the man behind “The Worst Campaign Ad That Human Beings Actually Paid for This Year”, tells anyone who will listen that President Obama’s visit to Michigan yesterday is going to harm the election chances of Mark Schauer, Gary Peters, and all of our Democratic candidates, over 6,000 people showed up to see him […]

Detroit Free Press extols Mark Schauer’s values as “embedded in Michigan’s DNA” then endorses Rick Snyder for Governor

Detroit Free Press extols Mark Schauer’s values as “embedded in Michigan’s DNA” then endorses Rick Snyder for Governor

For the most part, I give little credence to newspaper endorsements except when they are out of character. However, the Detroit Free Press endorsement of Rick Snyder deserves to be discussed derisively for the absurdity that it is. If you read the commentary accompanying the endorsement, you would assume that Mark Schauer would have been their choice. These are some […]

New PPP poll has Peters up by 14 points over what’s-her-name and Schauer tied 48-48 with Snyder

Photo by Anne C. Savage, special to Eclectablog I always look forward to Public Policy Polling (PPP) polls because they are one of the most accurate pollsters in the country. They have a new poll out, done for the League of Conservation Voters, that has some very good news for Democrats. First, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate is crushing his […]

First we have a poll by Republican pollster Mitchell Research & Communication that […]

BREAKING: More corruption in the Snyder administration: $26.4 million in no-bid contracts awarded to campaign donor (UPDATED)

The Michigan Democratic Party released bombshell news today that the Snyder administration awarded $26.4 million in no-bid contracts to a high-dollar donor to the Snyder reelection campaign. On June 9, 2014, the owners of J&B Medical Supply, which supplies diapers and other incontinence products to Department of Community Health, hosted a lavish fundraiser for Rick Snyder in Bloomfield Hills which […]

VIDEO: DGA hammers Gov. Snyder in new ad showing the “Faces” of people hit hardest by Snyder’s policies

VIDEO: DGA hammers Gov. Snyder in new ad showing the “Faces” of people hit hardest by Snyder’s policies

A new ad out by the Democratic Governor’s Association is one of their best yet. Called “Faces”, it shows the faces of real people hit hardest by Republican Governor Rick Snyder’s pro-business, anti-middle class policies. It’s an effective ad on the heels of last weekend’s debate between Snyder and Democratic candidate Mark Schauer. Snyder spent a great deal of time […]

With Mark Schauer, it’s the little things

There are many variations of the saying that the ultimate measure of a man (or woman) is not what they do when they are in public but what they do when they are alone. Another simple, quaint saying is, “it’s the little things.” If we were to juxtapose those two sayings we might just end up with something that would […]

Mark Schauer put Rick Snyder on the defensive in their one debate, Snyder acted frantic

Last night’s one and only gubernatorial debate between Republican Rick Snyder and his Democratic challenger Mark Schauer showed our state two very different men. While Schauer gave answers that were succinct and generally on point, Snyder came across as frantic and defensive for most of the evening. The debate opened with a question about education funding and Schauer didn’t back […]

VIDEO: Mark Schauer vows to repeal Snyder’s tax on seniors & make corporations that send jobs overseas repay tax breaks

In his latest ad, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer vows to roll back Rick Snyder’s senior pension tax and to give tax breaks to companies that create jobs in Michigan. If they outsource their jobs overseas, says Schauer, “I’ll make them repay every penny.” It’s a powerful ad. Take a look:
