Dems target Oakland County in bid to flip House, Senate seats to blue

October 15, 2018

By Bill Laitner, Detroit Free Press

In November’s topsy-turvey midterm election, a “blue wave” of liberal voters could unseat some Republicans, even in traditional GOP strongholds like Oakland County.

That’s the hope of a group of mostly women based in Bloomfield Township, called Fems for Dems. Their goal is to engineer upsets for Democrats in numerous political districts held by Republicans – a feat called “flipping” a seat -- for offices from county commissioner all the way up to U.S. Congress.

Founded in 2016 by self-confessed political neophyte Lori Goldman, the group boasts 1,000 activists and draws 20 to 70 volunteers each Wednesday night at Goldman’s house for “phone banking." They pick four to five races each time and make mass calls to voters in those districts, imploring them to study the issues and to vote, and of course to consider supporting the Democrat, Goldman said. "We work with the intention that every race can be flipped to a Democrat," Goldman said.

Republicans look to keep big Senate majority; Democrats look for flips

July 29, 2018

By Kathleen Gray, Detroit Free Press

Democrats hope that the traditionally Republican-leaning 12th Senate District could flip this year because the district lines include much of the highly competitive 11th Congressional District that will be vacant because U.S. Rep. David Trott, R-Birmingham, has decided not to run for reelection.

The race has generated intense enthusiasm on the Democratic side and Rosemary Bayer, the Beverly Hills co-founder of ardentCause L3C, a technology company that serves nonprofit organizations, is hoping to capitalize on that. She is running unopposed in the primary election.
