Michigan’s 16 Electoral College votes are critical to winning the White House in 2020.
In 2016, Democrats didn’t get enough voters in traditional Democratic strongholds, and lost crucial votes in rural parts of Michigan. Gaining back support in these areas (and state-wide) will be essential for Democrats to win Michigan.
Plus, Michigan Democrats could take back the state’s House of Representatives from Republicans for the first time since 2010—we just need four state house seats! This will provide Governor Whitmer with the support she needs in the state legislature, and help overturn gerrymandering.
