MoveOn Statement on Michigan Gubernatorial Primary Results

WASHINGTON - Statement from Lisa Changadveja, MoveOn’s state and local director, in response to Abdul El-Sayed’s loss today:

“The strength of Abdul El-Sayed’s campaign in Michigan has shown the nation what kind of politics is possible when we put the challenges facing students, working people, and people of color front and center in our dialogue. Abdul has activated an entirely new coalition of voters, and brought new people into the political process, both enormous achievements worth celebrating.

“While Michigan MoveOn members voted to endorse Abdul, they also understand the importance of wrestling governor’s mansions across the country away from the grip of reactionary politicians. That’s why we will do everything in our power to elect Gretchen Whitmer as Michigan’s next governor, and end the Republican-led assaults on communities across the state.”
