Michigan Democratic Party prepares for endorsement convention

The endorsement convention for the Michigan Democratic Party kicks off tomorrow.

The convention is a chance for Democrats to rally around several candidates for statewide office like attorney general and secretary of state.

Party spokesperson Abby Rubley says the party’s diverse groups are entering Saturday's convention unified—without anyone contesting races.

“We are coming together tomorrow and virtually and in person to say, whatever corner of the tent that you sit in, we’re going to do this together. And not only are we going to do this together, but you actually all get to participate as well.”

Rubley says she expects a smooth and relatively quick convention.

Delegates are also voting on a resolution packet that includes decisions on whether to support or oppose a handful of ballot initiatives.
