trump-and-clinton-campaign-in-metro-detroit--march-4-2016-d91d7470e884c7a8Three of Michigan’s congressional races top the list of districts nationwide most threatened by the top-of-the ticket.

According to a memo obtained by MIRS, written by Republican micro-targeting firm Deep Root Analytics, MI-1, MI-7 and MI-11 are among the Top 10 House seats with a high proportion of “reluctant Republican” voters.

The research firm — whose expertise is using data to determine more efficient ad buys — defines “reluctant Republican” as “down-ballot Republicans who have concerns about the top of their party’s ticket in 2016,” resulting in a “likely ticket-splitter.”

Does anyone know where MI-01 congressional candidate Lon Johnson actually lives?  Johnson says he lives in Kalkaska, but it’s hard to be sure since he’s lived in 11 different places since 2000.  Prior to Kalkaska, Johnson lived in Chicago with his wife, Juliana Smoot, who was Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager.  According to FEC disbursement forms, Smoot’s address in Chicago is Atwater Luxury Apartments, located at 355 E. Ohio Street (pictured below).

But now that Johnson is running for Congress, the Smoot-Johnson’s supposedly live at 6261 E. Bass Lake Road NE, Kalkaska, MI 49646 (pictured below).  (Click HERE for a crash course on why this is the Smoot-Johnson’s primary address.)

635854702099794653-rick-snyder-1-1-FLCODG7S-L720862664Just as terrorists who betray cherished values in the name of Islam do not speak for the 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, Donald Trump does not speak for me, the state of Michigan, nor the entire Republican Party.

To say that Michigan is on the same path that Trump proposes is a great injustice to those who are working hard to make our state welcoming and successful. But the Free Press Editorial Board has tied my request for a review of immigration and visa processes to Trump’s recent inappropriate comments.

prevailing+wageThe group pushing for a prevailing wage repeal ballot initiative, Protecting Michigan Taxpayers (PMT), announced today it’s starting over on gathering signatures.

This comes after an opposition group challenged PMT’s 390,000 signatures it turned in and said it found 43 percent of the signatures were duplicates or were otherwise bad (See “Union-Backed Group Calls Foul On Prevailing Wage Petition,” 10/26/15).

PMT announced today it asked the state not to certify the submitted signatures and instead submitted new ballot language to restart the process.

Lansing, Mich.– Hillary Clinton’s growing unfavorable perception among Michigan voters is costing her the early lead she midterm-elections-michigan-hillary-clintonhad on potential Republican opponents in next year’s Presidential election.

Since March of 2015, Clinton’s favorable rating in Michigan has dropped by 15 points and her unfavorable rating has jumped 15 points according to a survey of 600 likely general election voters conducted by Marketing Resource Group (MRG). In April of 2015, 45 percent of voters had a favorable opinion of Clinton and 44 percent viewed her unfavorably. In September her favorable rating went down to 30 percent and her unfavorable rating climbed to 59 percent.

With this change in her perception, Clinton now trails both Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina 39 percent to 40 percent. Clinton leads Donald Trump 43 percent to 40 percent despite Trump’s abysmal favorable rating of only 28 percent and unfavorable of 56 percent.

In a dispute that could yield one of the most important judicial decisions of this generation, the US Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to hear arguments examining whether the Constitution requires state governments to license and recognize marriages between persons of the same-sex.

The issues arise in four consolidated cases from same-sex couples in Ohio, Tennessee, Michigan, and Kentucky. The couples are challenging state laws and state constitutional amendments that limit marriage to its traditional definition – a union of one man and one woman.
