MI Gov



We need to hold this seat.

Clinton lost by:


Biden won by:


2016-20 shift:


Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

democrat (Incumbent)


Vetoed GOP efforts to suppress the right to vote.

Has kept Michiganders safe throughout the pandemic.

Is making historic investments in K-12 education without raising taxes.

Tudor Dixon

republican (Challenger)

Supports a near-total abortion ban and touts her support for Michigan laws which criminalize abortions.

Spreads right-wing conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

Supports efforts to take tens of millions in public funding away from public schools and is funded by the DeVos family.

Note: If this office has an incumbent, the incumbent is shown here. Swing Left will support the Democratic nominee following the primary, or pre-primary only if they are running unopposed, with the exception of statewide incumbents in competitive gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races, which have received early support.

MI House





We need to make gains in this chamber.

Michigan Democrats have picked up five seats in the state house over the last two elections and are five seats away from winning a majority. The new state house map presents continued opportunities for Democrats to protect key gains and flip five vulnerable Republican-held seats during the 2022 midterms after falling just short in 2020.

HD-20: Noah Arbit (D)

HD-21: Rep. Kelly Breen (D)

HD-22: Rep. Matt Koleszar (D)

HD-31: Reggie Miller (D)

HD-48: Jennifer Conlin (D)

HD-56: Sharon MacDonell (D)

HD-61: Denise Mentzer (D)

MI Senate





We need to make gains in this chamber.

Democrats flipped five seats when the Michigan State Senate was last up for reelection in 2018. The new state senate map presents many more opportunities than last decade’s Republican gerrymandered maps and should allow Democrats to protect key gains from 2018 and to flip five vulnerable Republican-held seats this November.

SD-4: Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D)

SD-9: Rep. Padma Kuppa (D)

SD-11: Veronica Klinefelt (D)

SD-13: Sen. Rosemary Bayer (D)

SD-14: Sue Shink (D)

SD-28: Sam Singh (D)

SD-30: Rep. David LaGrand (D)

SD-35: Kristen McDonald Rivet (D)
