Now that Dems won big in Michigan, it's worth taking a look at how Mike Pence is actually one of the state's biggest losers this election cycle.

He made himself a constant presence, visiting his neighbor state almost once a month starting in March of 2018 #MIGov
Every visit, Pence stayed on-script, touted tax cuts & got 2-3 rounds of news coverage. He also visited multiple times in 2017, gave a commencement at Hillsdale, and supported Bill Schuette nearly 10 months before the GOP primary.
As one example of how it didn't work, @gretchenwhitmer flipped Kent County red to blue -- even though Pence brought his fake resolve & Trump's tax-cuts-are-great act to Grand Rapids in August, Sept, and then again in Oct a week before Election Day #MIGov

From the governor's mansion to the halls of Congress, Democrats across Michigan have the opportunity to reclaim the state from Republicans. #MIpol (1/7) NXTGN.US/fjf
#MIGov: Gretchen Whitmer is the leader Michigan deserves. She supports affordable healthcare, the #metoo movement, and will stand up to Trump. NXTGN.US/fjg
#MISen: Debbie Stabenow was the first woman to defeat a sitting senator. From banning oil and gas drilling in the Great Lakes to supporting sensible gun control, Stabenow will fight to protect Michigan residents. NXTGN.US/fjh

2/ Now that the #MIGov primary is over, since the most contentious debate between El-Sayed and Whitmer (besides 'dark money') was about single-payer healthcare, let's get a few things straight:
3/ 1. "Single Payer" refers to any healthcare system where the gov’t is the payment source for healthcare providers (doctors/hospitals/drug cos/etc).

Hi from the Whitmer watch party in the #MIGOV race. Early results only but if Abdul El-Sayed was looking to replicate Bernie map from 2016 presidential primary -- things are going to have to change. Whitmer up big in Clinton County with 40% of precincts in. Bernie won by 13 pts
I'd say it's still worth watching the numbers here. Whitmer probably wants to be over 50 percent to claim statewide mandate, and we'll see how El-Sayed performs in cities like in and around Detroit. Results page here…

Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed is endorsed by Oakland County Democratic Black Caucus. (Oakland County is north of Detroit with about 1.2 million residents.)
Earlier, rival gubernatorial candidate Shri Thanedar got the support of some Baptist pastors and civil rights leaders in Detroit. The black vote in the Democratic primary is influential:
April survey showed that gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer was struggling with minority support:
"Thenadar holds a strong lead over Whitmer of 38.7%-14.3% among black voters"
