I consider the below article good news. Michigan is my home state, and the Democratic Party is too stuck in the past. They need new blood. I for one do not want senior U.S. Senator Carl Levin, first elected in 1978, re-nominated in 2014. And I did not vote to re-elect junior U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, first elected in 2000, last November. (I voted Green. Levin and Stabenow having voted to extend the Patriot Act, last year, has turned me away from them.) The Michigan Democratic Party needs to be revived to become a more proactively progressive party. Being less than that contributed to the ballot failures from last November. If such changes, starting with getting rid of Mark Brewer, were to become a reality perhaps the No. 8 state (about to be supplanted by Georgia) might someday produce a Democratic president of the United States. (Nearly all of the last 100 years' worth of U.S. presidents hailed from a Top 10 or Top 20 state. Why shouldn't Michigan get in on the action? That is, if they were to field the right type of candidate.)
Michigan Democrats' chairman's days may be numbered

It sure looks as though Mark Brewer's days as the chairman of the state's Democratic Party are numbered.
The actual decision won't be made until the party meets Feb. 23. But it can't be a good sign when the state's Democratic congressional delegation — including Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow — come out in writing in support of an alternative candidate who hasn't officially entered the race.
