Today in campaign news: Mike Bishop fails to land exclusive Right to Life endorsement

by: Eric B.

Tue Jun 10, 2014 at 10:25:03 AM EDT

*--I thought there was no real race in the 8th Congressional District and no imaginable reason for Right to Life not to just exclusively endorse Mike Bishop. I was wrong. Right to Life endorsed Bishop and Tom McMillin. Someone surmised last night on social media that this is a sign of Bishop's declining clout within the party. I think it's more a nod to the nutters who love McMillin, that even after McMillin gets creamed in August that his supporters will long remember a perceived slight.

*--Lil' Fella reneges on a promise to debate Brian Ellis in the 3rd, and says that the issues Eillis is running on -- abortion, a balanced budget amendment  and pointing out how nutty Lil' Fella is rather than the ravings of dead Austrian economists -- are unpopular with Republican voters

*--Brenda Lawrence is reporting that her campaign in the 14th Congressional District has been endorsed by the Michigan/Ontario Council of Bishops, C.O.G.I.C.

*--Bobby McKenzie's campaign reported yesterday that it has been endorsed by the Michigan State Association of Letter Carriers.

*--In a move that should surprise exactly no one, Willard "Mitt" Romney has endorsed Vampire of Misfortune David Trott.

*--The campaign of Rudy Hobbs has announced that it has secured the endorsement of AFSCME Council 25.

*--Update! ... BREAKING HARD ... MUST CREDIT MICHIGAN LIBERAL PARAPHRASING A PRESS RELEASE. In Washtenaw County, the Huron Valley Central Labor Council has endorsed Tracy Van Den Burgh for probate judge.

As to that last one, if you're a campaign that wants to get news out, send tips to ebaerren@michiganliberal.com and I will give an honest try to putting stuff into these posts. Don't care if it's a Congressional campaign or a city council race.
