For those of you who might have missed it, what with all the hoopla about the Oscars, our Alt State Department issued a list earlier this evening of those GOP Representatives who, according to the data, may be most vulnerable in the upcoming midterm elections, and the state of Michigan has two Republican members of Congress on it; Dave Trott, of Michigan’s 11th district, who got rich foreclosing on the homes of Michiganders and now refuses to meet with his constituents, and retired General Jack Bergman, of Michigan’s 1st district, who was pretty much wasn’t even living in Michigan when he decided to run for office here, and has likewise apparently been hiding from the people he’s sworn to represent. I don’t know that either will be easy to beat, but one has to think that we’d at least have a shot. I know there are other factors to be considered, as circumstances change over time, but I’ve got $10 earmarked for each of their Democratic opponents, as soon as they become known, and I’m going to do my best to start covering them both more here on the blog, in hopes of helping flip those two seats. If you have any information on either one, let me know. And, if there are other seats that you think might be in play, I’d like to know that as well… So, now let’s strategize on how to flip these seats.
Here’s the entire Alt State Department list, for those of you who aren’t lucky enough to be living in the great state of Michigan.
