Michigan

Here we need to:
​Flip the State House
Hold a U.S. Senate Seat

Michigan had voted for the Democratic candidate for President for decades before 2016, when the combination of white, working class voters' animus toward politics as usual and Clinton's absence there on her campaign led to the state being flipped to Republicans.

​Peters is an incumbent running in a state that had voted blue for 20 years before flipping to Trump in 2016.

  •  Entered the Senate in 2015 

  • Introduced a bill to reallocate money from police departments to communities in need

Democrats would only need to flip three seats to take the chamber back. 

  • Pohutsky is an advocate for expanding civil rights legislation, especially to the LGBTQ+ community

  • Running against an unknown Republican challenger

  • This was another race that went blue in 2018 after being a Republican stronghold for many cycles, which indicates a distaste for Trump.

  • 2018: D+1, 2016: R+13, 2014: R+13

  • O'Neil lost a race for this seat by about 300 votes in 2018.

  • Extremely concerned about government transparency, O'Neil's priorities are anti-corruption and education.

  •  2018: R+0.8, 2016: R+9, 2014: R+7
