Democrats Will Endorse Candidates for 2012 Elections
LANSING – The Michigan Democratic Party will hold an Endorsement Convention on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at Cobo Center in Detroit. Delegates will endorse three candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court and eight candidates for statewide Education Boards.
“This is a great opportunity for candidates to introduce themselves to Democratic activists from around the state and begin meeting the voters,” MDP Chair Mark Brewer said. “For our activists, it is a great way to kick off the 2012 campaign where are goals are to re-elect President Obama and Sen. Stabenow, add to the Democratic Congressional Delegation, and take back both the State House and the State Supreme Court.”
“The Michigan Supreme Court is one of the most blatantly partisan courts in the country,” added Brewer. “The Court continues to rule in favor of corporations, insurance companies, oil companies, and drug companies over victims. I’m confident that whomever we endorse on March 10th can help us take back the Court for the people in 2012.”
In order to be eligible to vote at the Convention, delegates must be members of the Michigan Democratic Party at least 30 days in advance, or by February 9, 2012.
