    Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden got into a heated exchange with a plant worker during a stop at a Detroit auto plant on Tuesday morning. Walking through the crowd of hardhat donning employees while shaking hands and smiling for photos, Biden stopped abruptly to have a brief but tense and unpleasant encounter with one worker who wanted to discuss guns. The man questioned why Biden wanted to take his Second Amendment rights away which caused him to become immediately enraged as he began to shove his finger in the auto plant worker's face.
  • Joe Biden tells Michigan factory worker he’s ‘full of sh*t,’ says he’s going take ‘AR-14s’ away

    Joe Biden needs to win Michigan. It’s a swing state the President won in 2016, so winning the primary will do more than give Biden more delegates. It will solidify his reputation as being better than Bernie Sanders at defeating President Trump. But at a campaign stop at a factory today, Biden got a little agitated over a question about the 2nd Amendment. So far, we’ve found two versions of the video. The one above is longer and seems to have better audio, while the one below from Benny Johnson gives a clearer picture of Biden’s angered facial features as...

    President Trump is holding a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, on Wednesday, the day the House is voting on impeachment. The House is debating two articles of impeachment – one that accuses him of abuse of power over his dealings with Ukraine and another that says he obstructed Congress by defying subpoenas issued by the House in pursuit of its impeachment investigation. Mr. Trump is the third president in U.S. history to face an impeachment vote by the House of Representatives. Two of the Democrats in the Michigan delegation who flipped seats held by Republicans in 2018 – congresswomen Elissa...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Second-time U.S. Senate candidate John James has earned the endorsement of the Michigan Republican State Committee. *** James is a combat veteran and a businessman in Detroit who ran an unsuccessful campaign against Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in 2018. Should James win the Republican nomination in 2020, he will face off against incumbent Democrat Gary Peters. *** Before the endorsement, James got support from Vice President Mike Pence during his stop in Holland this month.

    Senate Conservatives Fund ^ | 12/3/19 | Mary Vought
    Fellow Conservative: Businessman and combat veteran John James (R-MI) now leads incumbent Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) by one percentage point according to a new poll released this week. The survey of 600 likely voters shows James leading Peters, 43% to 42%, and gaining support among independents. This is very exciting news, but winning in Michigan won't be easy. The Democrats will spend millions to destroy John James and this new poll will only speed up their attacks.

    President Donald Trump's son is planning to campaign against the only Republican congressman who has called for his father's impeachment. Donald Trump Jr. will be heading to Michigan to fight Rep. Justin Amash in a primary battle, people close to the Trump Organization executive told CNBC on the condition of anonymity. This comes after Trump's son tweeted out a poll showing Amash losing to his only challenger so far in the race, state legislator Jim Lower, and hinting he will be heading to the Wolverine State to take on the four-term lawmaker. "See you soon Justin... I hear Michigan is...

    Nothing would better encapsulate the GOP’s political turn over this past decade than watching the most hardcore small-government Republican in Congress get obliterated in a primary because he’s worried that the president committed a crime.I wonder if he’ll stick around and accept this beating as a matter of principle or announce his retirement before the election. If he retires, he’ll spare himself the embarrassment of defeat but be seen as running from a fight. If he runs again, he’ll show that he’s defiant to the end but very likely end up humiliated on Primary Day, to Trump’s great satisfaction.Alternate...

    President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Sterling Heights, Michigan, on May 18 to raise support for his reelection in the critical swing state. The Daily Caller News Foundation sent a crack team to this unusual event to investigate strange rumors surrounding the event. Could thousands of people in a battleground actually gather together to support the supposedly embattled American leader? It seemed impossible. Imagine our surprise to discover the unbelievable truth. Not only were there really thousands of people at the rally, but the overwhelming majority of those in attendance actually love the current U.S. president! Donald J....

    Less than 48 hours after GOP Rep. Justin Amash declared that President Trump "engaged in impeachable conduct," a fellow Republican has vowed to challenge him in the upcoming primary election. Michigan state Rep. Jim Lower made his intentions known Monday morning, announcing that instead of seeking a third term in the state legislature, he will run against Amash for their party's nomination for the 2020 election. Amash has served as the representative for Michigan's Third District since 2011.

    GREENVILLE, Mich. — Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, the first Republican in Congress to accuse President Donald Trump of impeachable conduct, is facing a primary challenge. State Rep. Jim Lower (LOW'-ur) announced Monday he's running for the western Michigan seat. The announcement came two days after Amash sent a series of tweets faulting Trump and Attorney General William Barr over special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The 30-year-old Lower, of Greenville, says he made the announcement earlier than planned after Amash attacked Trump.

    Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan says he enlists social media to do something unusual: explain why he bucks his party in terms his constituents can understand. The 39-year-old Republican, who was the youngest member of the freshman class in 2011, states his approach succinctly: “I defend liberty and explain every vote here.” The simple formula has turned the libertarian, who rode into the House on the tea party wave, into something of a sensation. In 2012, the Independent Voter Network called Amash the “coolest member of Congress.” Amash’s latest decision — to state publicly that President Trump engaged in activity...

    A major super PAC aligned with POTUS Donald Trump has identified six key states the president will need in order to secure his reelection next year. According to America First Action, those states are Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan, The Daily Caller reported. No doubt whatever crazy the Democrats nominate, that candidate will win the deep blue enclaves of California and New York, and may even be able to pull off a majority of votes again (though that is looking less and less likely).

    LANSING, MI -- On a cold Michigan day and among hundreds of supporters, Gretchen Whitmer was sworn in and officially inaugurated as the state’s 49th governor. She struck a tone of bipartisanship, acknowledging legislative leaders from both parties and saying, “We owe it to the people we serve to cast partisanship aside, to roll up our sleeves, and to build bridges together.” Her campaign logo incorporated the Mackinac Bridge, and she drew on that as an example of a time Michiganders worked together to build something that connected people and strengthened the state’s economy.
