Any idea how MI-08 polling?
Jim Wins Poll, Earns Michigan Liberal Endorsement

Last week Michigan Liberal, a popular left-leaning blog, conducted an online poll to determine which Democratic challenger for Congress in Michigan should receive its "Michigan First!" endorsement. The poll ended today at 5pm, and the results are in. Jim got over 46% of the total, equalling the vote totals of the next three candidates combined. That means that Jim earned the "Michigan First!" endorsement from In addition to the endorsement, Michigan Liberal will put a direct link to both our website and our contributions page on their home page -- as they have for the State Rep and State Senate candidates who won similar polls: Eric Gregory (HD041 Troy) and David LaGrand (SD29 Grand Rapids). Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word about this poll and encouraged people to vote for Jim.

Battling Power of Incumbency, and Feeling Left to Fight Alone

"Mr. Marcinkowski, a crisply groomed former C.I.A. operations officer, could represent a tougher-than-usual test for Mr. Rogers, who was re-elected by a margin of 37 percentage points in 2002 and 24 percentage points in 2004. A former Republican, Mr. Marcinkowski has a tough-guy rsum Navy, C.I.A., teamster and the silvery-haired presence of a Famous Guy you would swear you had seen before, maybe on television.

He drew national attention in 2003 and 2005 when he testified before Congress about his friend and former C.I.A. classmate Valerie Wilson. The story of Ms. Wilson, the agent whose identity was leaked by Bush administration officials, sealed Mr. Marcinkowskis divorce from the Republicans. He had been active in the party from the time he organized the Michigan State University campus for Ronald Reagans presidential campaign in 1980 but had gradually become disenchanted, particularly during the George W. Bush years."
