As the fight for control of the state House heats up, Dems delivering for Michiganders raises more than MIGOP MAGA chaos 

LANSING —  In case you missed it, in yet another resounding show of disapproval for the MIGOP’s extremist agenda, the Michigan Democratic House Caucus raised nearly double what the Michigan Republican Campaign Committee brought in from January to April of this year with Democrats raising $2.2 million to the MAGA House Caucus’ paltry $1.3 million. 

After spending months in a whirlwind of MAGA fanaticism, the MAGA Michigan House Caucus, led by MAGA Matt Hall, couldn’t manage to outraise Michigan Dems or even come close to matching them. It’s the latest sign that the vast majority of Michiganders have no interest in the conspiracy-riddled, far-right agenda that they are peddling. 

In a one-two punch, following the release of Michigan House Republicans’ poor fundraising, the Michigan Advance published a piece that called out the man tapped to help with this fundraising for his failed leadership, disgraced former Governor Rick Snyder, in another sign that the MIGOP is more out of step than ever. 

The bottom line is, MAGA Matt Hall’s caucus clearly does not understand Michigan values, and they have no business being anywhere near the House leadership.
