trump-veronica-2Republican nominee Donald Trump campaigned in Michigan Monday, a state where he is narrowing the gap with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to recent polls.

Speaking in Grand Rapids in the early afternoon, Trump focused on jobs and the economy, promising Michigan voters that he would bring back manufacturing jobs.

“Michigan has lost one in four manufacturing jobs since Bill Clinton signed NAFTA,” Trump said.

“Before NAFTA, there were 280,000 auto jobs in Michigan, and now there is 160,000 and its going down fast. We have nearly $800 billion in trade deficits with the rest of the world,” he continued.

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.)

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.
