KCDP Report from the Michigan Democratic Party’s Spring Convention

Last Saturday, the¬†MDP held their 2017 Spring Convention at COBO Center in Detroit. Attendance was through the roof. Typically a Spring Convention will net a couple of thousand delegates. This year, there were almost 4,200 delegates and 5,000 total in attendance — many of whom are young people. It’s safe to say that Democrats are fired up and ready to work!
