Tag: 104th District
For many, this week will be an especially long one.
Count me as one of those watching the clock tick away till Tuesday.
As many might know already, the first financials are out. In the 104th district race, if one was to look at the money spent, and figured all that mattered was how much each candidate used, then one might think that the establishment wins yet another time. No amount of financial paint however, can pretty up the big government ways of the 104th district incumbent, and frankly folks are beginning to wise up.
Looking at the financials, a $76k expenditure is impressive, a $95K fund raise even more so. But the base of support is maybe not so good for a four year incumbent. Most of the donations are lobbying PACS, law firms, and chamber entities including the often screwed up Detroit chamber. In fact looking at the collection, I may have driven part of the fundraising effort for him. They sure want him back. Bad.
But its up to the people who vote.
After personally reaching (mostly lit drop) about 950 doors in the last 4 days alone, any feedback I have gotten indicates a mood for changing up. Printer's tired, but I'm not.
Yet. And I have help.

This is two of several candidates running for the Michigan house 104th district. Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping Democrats from attending. These two are running for the seat currently held by Wayne Schmidt
As with the others the sound could be better, and as with some of the videos taken at the event, I could not compress without losing content, so they are broken into two parts.
I hope this helps.
