Whitmer, Nessel, Dems urge residents to vote during virtual rally

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and a bevy of other Michigan Democratic politicians during a Saturday virtual rally conveyed support for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and called on residents to vote in the Nov. 3 general election.

The two-hour “Vote Michigan” event was organized by the Lansing-area affiliate of the Blue Brigade, a group who says their goal is to flip the White House, U.S. Senate and take back state legislatures from Republicans in 2020.

Biden appeared in a segment of the virtual rally, but made no specific reference to Michigan. The former vice president made a campaign stop in the state earlier this week.

Whitmer reiterated her support for Biden, but used part of her segment to tell viewers it’s critical for Democrats to win back the majority of the Michigan House in 2020. Both chambers of the state Legislature are currently GOP-controlled. The entire House is up in November, but the Senate is not on the ballot until 2022.
