New polling in Michigan

The race is tied?Hi Friend,  Just 3 days. That’s all the time we have left to protect our democracy.   My opponent and the GOP extremists funding her know that their views don’t represent Michigan. That’s why she’s hiding her association with Right to Life, even while she celebrates the loss of rep…

Fwd: $500 for every Michigander

I want a state tax credit in your pocket. Hi Friend,  I first sent this message back in September. I’m sending it again today because Michigan families are still hurting, and the Republicans in the State House are still stalling. Now is our chance to take their power away so we can help the famili…

What is she hiding?

My opponent can’t be trustedHi Friend,  I’m proud of every endorsement I’ve received, and of the fact that it’s a long and bi-partisan list.

Your vote overruled

The GOP is on the attack

We can’t let them win Hi Friend, I’ll get straight to the point. In the last few weeks, we’ve seen the GOP pour a ton of money into Michigan to shore up their State House majority.    Trump even came to Macomb county last week, committed to protecting this majority for state legislators like Rep. …
