Some people who are running for office this year

by: Eric B.

Thu Jan 09, 2014 at 10:59:10 AM EST

Via Ye Olde Inbox, seconded from Gongwer:

Rep. Ellen Cogen Lipton has filed to run for the 11th Senate District, setting up a major Democratic primary against Rep. Vicki Barnett, and Rep. Terry Brown has filed in the 25th Senate District, giving Democrats a top-level challenger to Sen. Phil Pavlov (R-St. Clair).

Also, a guy named Timothy Schaiberger is running as an independent in the 103rd District. I know this because he told me. The district is currently represented by Bruce Rendon.

Finally, Jeremy Orr is running for the Kalamazoo County Commission. For those of you who live in Kalamazoo County and care, it's the seat currently held by David Buskirk. He is a Democrat.

The 11th Senate District Contains:
Farmington Hills
Hazel Park
Huntington Woods
Lathrup Village
Madison Heights
Oak Park
Pleasant Ridge
Royal Oak Township

Should be quite the primary election!  It will be worth watching whether a Southfield candidate also emerges.

Great Lakes, Great Times.

This stinks
Two great legislators having to run against each other, when there are so many GOP districts that are locked up by gerrymandering.
Barnett is the better campaigner but Cogen-Lipton can raise money. I have supported both in the past. I'm stumped.

The Primary in the 11th will be tough
As most people like both candidates - glad I don't have to make that decision.

Terry Brown running in the 25th is real good news.

Vicki Barnett
would make a great running mate for our nominee. And maybe he does something out of the box and nominates his running mate early?

[ Parent ]
Barnett was talked about several months ago
as a possible candidate for Governor. Then Schauer got in, and Barnett endorsed him.

I'd go for a Schauer-Barnett ticket - and not just to clear the field for Lipton, either.

Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

Also, Shari Pollesch, attorney from Brighton
is running as a Democratic candidate for SD-22 against Joe Hune. This is a pretty red district, but Shari should have a better shot against Joe than anyone else he has run against since first being elected to the State House.
