The Fight to Restore Justice to a Biased Court: The Importance of the 2000 Michigan Supreme Court Elections and the Grass-Roots Efforts taken by the Michigan Democratic Coordinated Campaign
The 2000 Michigan Supreme Court elections have garnered more attention than any previous elections for Supreme Court. The current make-up of the Supreme Court threatens the rights of individual citizens to defend themselves against the growing power and influence of America's top corporations. The Democratic candidates, guided by a coordinated campaign effort run by the Democratic Party State Central Committee, have allocated as many resources as possible to taking back control of the Michigan Supreme Court, forcing the Republican candidates to lobby more than ever for campaign funds. The newfound interest in these races, which are by nature supposed to be nonpartisan, stems in part from the 2000 Census and the redistricting plan that will result after the elections are concluded.
