Senate Democrats’ Q1 Fundraising Numbers
In a midterm election cycle that typically favors the party not holding the White House, fundraising will be one barometer to measure whether that dynamic holds true in 2018.

Michigan Mayor Who Wants to Replace Conyers Has a Penchant for Fancy Hotels
Bill Wild, the Democrat mayor of Westland, Mich., is running to replace Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), who hastily retired after more than five decades in Congress due to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
Not surprisingly, the race to replace Conyers is a crowded one. Somewhat surprisingly, it includes multiple Conyers family members. Conyers endorsed his son, John Conyers III, a “political neophyte” at just 27 years of age. But Conyers’ great-nephew, state Sen. Ian Conyers, 29, is also running for the Detroit-area seat, according to The Hill.
Other, non-Conyers-family-member candidates include state Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, former state Reps. Shanelle Jackson and Rashida Tlaib, state Sen. Coleman Young II, and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, to name a few.
Which brings us back to Wild. If you want to learn more about the swanky hotels Wild charged to Westland taxpayers, become an AR Intel Insider today.
