We found out today that the DCCC is spending money in Michigan’s 6th Congressional District to take that seat away from Fred Upton, the man who played a huge role helping to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Haley Stevens is up by double digits in the 11th District meaning that seat will swing from David Trott, the Foreclosure King. In the 8th District, Republican organizations are pulling money from their support of Mike Bishop and Elissa Slotkin has a real chance to flip that seat. In the 7th District, Donald Trump is under water with higher disapproval numbers than his approval numbers, a district he won handily in 2016.
With some hard work, we are going to see a transformation in November and it’s all because people around our state and around the country are waking up politically and stepping up to support their values at the ballot box.
Here at Eclectablog, we provide you with the tools, the messaging, and the knowledge you need to be a badass activist. The tagline of our podcast, The GOTMFV Show, is “turning words into votes” and we mean it.
But, sadly, we can’t do it without your financial support. If we were a conservative blog, we’d get support from the Koch brothers and the DeVos family, and the Mackinac Center and wouldn’t have to worry about money. But we are still waiting for all that mythical “Soros money” to magically appear so we have to come to you from time to time, hat in hand, and ask you to support your values by supporting us. That allows us to pay our writers and to pay for all the infrastructure that makes Eclectablog and The GOTMFV Show happen.
