Today in campaign news: An IMP tells me that Brenda Lawrence has the lead in the latest poll

by: Eric B.

Sat Jun 14, 2014 at 10:00:00 AM EDT

*--Inside Michigan Politics was yesterday reporting that an internal poll in the 14th Congressional District has Brenda Lawrence up on Hansen Clarke 35 to 27 percent. There are 32 percent undecided voters, according to the poll. Rudy Hobbs had 6 percent. It is internal, so take that with a grain of salt.

*--The United Auto Workers Region 1A has endorsed Tracy Van Den Burgh in the race for Washtenaw County probate judge.

14th District Dems endorse Hobbs
Per his Facebook page.

This is quickly turning into a test of whether institutional players can help a candidate overcome a disadvantage in name recognition. As I've said before, Hobbs has what it takes to win - but if these polls are accurate, he's got some catching up to do.

5th Senate District
David Knezek seems to be picking up all of the endorsements in this race. Not only has UAW Region 1A endorsed him, he also recently announced the endorsements of Detroit EMS and Detroit Fire Fighters (this being in a district where 3 of his competitors represent or have represented Detroit before). He also received the endorsement of the 12th Congressional Dems (albeit only a small part of the Senate district is in the 12th).

Pretty impressive that a State Rep. who was first elected only 2 years ago is accumulating all the major endorsements against 2 current state reps who are both 5 years in and a former state rep who served 6 years.
