Gary Peters for MI: Supporting Down Ticket Dems

Meet the Democratic candidate for MI-9--Gary Peters.

According to the Swing State Project:

Michigan's 9th Congressional District will be one of the top targeted races for 2008. The DCCC has already aired ads exposing Knollenberg's awful record on veterans. Knollenberg is under fire from citizen action groups, and has been constantly bashed in letters to the editor throughout the district. Knollenberg is beatable. He narrowly won the '06 election with 51% of the vote, and has 15% less money now than he did this time that cycle.

It appears the 9th District has undergone a sudden blue trend. However the Democratic base in the district has been growing steadily for the last eight years. Despite the growing Democratic base, Joe Knollenberg continues to cruise to electoral success versus weak challengers. (emphasis added)

This morning VoteVets dropped me a line requesting that I add my support to getting Knollenberg out and putting Gary Peters in.

Since I don't have the kind of money I'd love to have in order to send funds to various and sundry Down Ticket Dems, I'm going to toss my 2p in here and post this diary.

    I wasn't aware that I had to focus on crime, prisons, and the death penalty when I posted a diary about getting a down ticket Dem elected to Congress.
