On February 2, 2019, the Michigan Democratic Party convened in Detroit at Cobo Hall for nominations and election of MDP officers.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel, Senators Debbie Stabenow & Gary Peters, Congresswomen Haley Stevens, Debbie Dingel, Brenda Lawrence, and Congressman Andy Levin all spoke to a crows of almost 4000 Michigan Democrats.
State Senate and House Democratic Caucuses also made an appearance on the big stage.
Three candidates vied for MDP Chair: Lavora Barnes, Lisa DiRado, and Greg Bowens. After nominations, all credentialed members of the MDP voted for their selection. Overwhelmingly, Lavora Barnes, former COO of the MDP, was elected Chairperson.
Eaton County Democrats were represented by 26 credentialed members in the 07 Congressional Caucus meeting–the second largest group from any county represented in the 07.
