Local Democrats Gearing Up

The Marquette County Republicans have held quite a few public events recently involving their Victory Center in Marquette Township.

Those included a visit from Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley just yesterday.

So what are local Democrats up to?

Party chair Ben Bohnsack says the Marquette County Democrats are alive and well.

And he says it’ll become more apparent beginning next week — the party will open its Marquette County headquarters shortly after next Tuesday’s primary election.

Staff from the Gary McDowell for Congress campaign have been working out of the county headquarters for the last two months.

The headquarters are on West Washington Street in Marquette, near the former Sara Lee bakery.

It’s the same space the party rented for the 2010 election season.
