Lansing, Michigan — January 23rd, 2019 — Yesterday, the Michigan Federation of College Democrats leadership heard from some of the candidates running for Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party. While all candidates were impressive, we felt that only one had the experience and detailed vision to move the MDP forward in a direction college students would approve of. We are proud to stand behind Lavora for MDP Chair. She has earned the chance to be the next MDP Chair through her decades of political organizing, including as the MDP's COO. We also appreciate her actionable plan for working with College Dems in her term as Chair. Furthermore, we are proud to join Gretchen Whitmer, Garlin Gilchrist, Brandon Dillon, Dana Nessel, UAW International Union, Michigan Education Association and many others in endorsing LaVora. We hope you will all join us in voting for LaVora Barnes on Saturday, Feb. 2nd in Detroit.
