Jocelyn Benson for Michigan Secretary of State
Election law scholar and community organizer Jocelyn Benson is running for an open seat to replace republican Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land who is term-limited out of office. In 2004, she ran a voter protection campaign in 21 states, deploying 17,000 trained election law lawyers. In Michigan in 2008, Benson helped lead the fight to stop republican Secretary of State Land from disenfranchising voters who were victims of home foreclosures.
Benson has been endorsed by Michigan Teamsters, Democracy for America, AFT-Michigan, the Building and Construction Trades Council, the 8th and 11th Congressional District Democratic Parties, Bangladeshi American Democratic Caucus, Michigan State University College Dems, Congressman John Conyers, Lake Superior State University (LSSU) College Democrats, American Federation of Government Employees, Justice Caucus, and MANY others.
