Michigan Democratic Party reserves over $10M in ads ahead of state House elections

Michigan’s Democratic Party is reserving $10.5 million in ad reservations in a bid to support candidates running in the state House elections in November. 

The party will spend $2.5 million in Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Detroit, respectively. One million will be spent in Marquette, while $700,000 will be allocated to ads in Traverse City and South Bend. Another $900,000 will be spent in Flint. 

The party’s major ad reservation is in addition to the nearly $8 million that Michigan House Democrats spent in reservations in the Detroit media market.

The news comes days after Michigan Democrats won back the majority in the state House on Tuesday, giving the party full control of state government. The lower chamber was previously tied 54-54 when two Democratic lawmakers left their seats after winning mayoral races. 

Democrats in Michigan have had a successful few years up and down the ballot, winning competitive races for governor, Senate, and House. Both parties will be tested once again in the state in November, this time during a presidential election.

The Hill’s Decision Desk HQ polling average shows former President Trump leading President Biden in the state 46.7 percent to 43.4 percent.
