5. It could be
The main problems the Democratic ticket face was this
1.money:The campaign didn't have enough money to counter "I'm just a guy that wants to help Michigan" message Snyder and his allies in the media was pushing.

2.Media: The only liberal station in the Detroit area is 1310 WDTW but there hasn't been a local talk show host at the station since what mid 2006 or early 2007 when you had Nancy Skinner hosting the morning show. Other than Ed Schultz giving Virg Bernero a platform where have you seen him in the press? His "Let it Rip" segment was too short. Plus it doesn't help when the three major (Yes I have to count the Michigan Chronicle as major newspaper because I know people who read it) newspapers recycle Snyder's talking points.

3. Backing from Dem leadership: Where the hell were they? Other than Bill Clinton I didn't see too many Democratic officials especially those in the city of Detroit pushing for Virg.
