Michigan Democrats in Debt and Disarray

LANSING, Mich., November 21, 2019 – One year out from the 2020 elections, federal campaign finance disclosures show that the Michigan Republican Party (MIGOP) enjoys a massive 40 to 1 cash advantage over their Democrat opponents. Additionally, the reports also show that the Michigan Democratic Party (MDP) is deep in debt and burning money faster than it is being raised. As of October 31st, the MDP was $126,720 in debt, and the party’s cash on hand sits at a meager $12,690. This is in stark contrast to the MIGOP, which has no debt and holds $502,785 cash on hand. This surplus of funds has been put to good use as the MIGOP has built one of the largest field staffs in the history of the 165-year-old organization. Meanwhile, MDP’s financial disadvantage is sure to hurt the party’s organizational efforts in a state which President Trump carried in 2016.



Cash on Hand








"I’m extremely proud of the position that the Michigan Republican Party is in one year out from the pivotal 2020 elections” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “Michigan voters will likely decide who wins the presidency next year. With our massive advantage in both fundraising and staffing, I’m confident Michigan Republicans will reelect President Trump, flip a U.S. Senate Seat and ensure we hold our majority in the State House next year.”
