    Are Socialists Deciding Close State House Races?

    The March/April 2009 Michigan Capitol Confidential carries a story about a program by the Greater Detroit Democratic Socialists of America to help candidates who line up with their values win closely contested races for the Michigan Legislature. Using organized door-to-door canvassing, fundraisers and other forms of aid, the group claims credit for getting four new Democratic lawmakers over the finish line. Those lawmakers are: Rep. Sarah Roberts, D - St. Clair Shores; Rep. Vickie Barnett, D - Farmington Hills; Rep. Jon Switalski, D - Warren; and Rep. Llisa Brown, D - West Bloomfield.

    What do you think?

    No matter the "door-to-door canvsassing, fundraisers, and other forms of aid", people still vote for who they think will represent them best. That happens to be mostly Democrats. Not surprising, considering the track record of Republicans.
