Republicans' narrow majority in the Michigan State Senate is the only thing that has blocked Democrats from having complete control of the state's government. So, it's quite odd that Democrats seem only to be making a perfunctory effort to defend one of their seats that is up Tuesday in a special election.
From the Detroit News:
Republican Mike Nofs, a former state representative from Battle Creek, and Democratic Rep. Martin Griffin of Jackson are vying for the 19th state Senate District that covers Calhoun and Jackson counties. It is considered a marginally Democratic district.
The winner replaces Democrat Mark Schauer in the Legislature. The seat has been vacant since Schauer was elected to Congress a year ago.
August polling had Nofs comfortably ahead, and it appears it's his race to lose if fundraising is any indication. Campaign finance reports filed Friday had Nofs at $298,752 compared to Griffin's $33,265. Nofs and his backers have been on the air with aggressive TV ads, while Griffin has opted not to run ads.
