Democratic National Committee

Michigan is seen as critical in this year’s presidential election.

President Donald Trump, a Republican, won Michigan by a narrow margin in 2016. He was the first Republican to win the state since 1988.

Nationally, Democrats were criticized for not paying enough attention to Michigan, Wisconsin and other battleground states.

In the lead up to the 2020 election, the national Democratic Party is investing heavily to win states they lost in 2016 that were formerly believed to be reliably ‘Blue.’
