MDP Responds to Young Announcing for U.S. Senate

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement today, on behalf of Party Chair Brandon Dillon, in response to Republican Robert Young, Jr.’s announcement that he is running for U.S. Senate in 2018, joining Lena Epstein in the GOP primary:

“In a survey commissioned by Michigan Lawyers Weekly, Robert Young was rated the worst judge on the Michigan Supreme Court and has sided with insurance companies, polluters, and other special interests throughout his decades on the bench,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chair Brandon Dillon. “From the very first law she passed in the U.S. Senate to stop oil drilling in the Great Lakes to her efforts to hold countries like China accountable on trade, Debbie Stabenow fights tirelessly for Michigan every day. We need someone on the side of Michigan families, not the special interests.”
