Michigan To Host Latest Democratic Primary

This week, 2014 (failed) Democratic nominee Jerry Cannon decided to throw his hat back into the ring to take another shot at a three term Republican Congressman. Despite being a “top” Democratic recruit, Cannon ended up losing the election by nearly 7 points last cycle.

There’s more than meets the eye to the seemingly commonplace Democratic primary though. Johnson, as the former Chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party, heavily recruited Cannon to run for office in the 1st District in 2014! Johnson, who once praised Cannon’s leadership, now has his work cut out for him as he tries to defeat the very man who he actively touted.
