Dear Friend,
Mike Rogers must be stopped.
I am Bob Alexander, Democratic Nominee for Michigan’s 8th Congressional District, which includes Ingham, Clinton, Livingston, and parts of Shiawassee and Oakland Counties. I need your support in my campaign to replace Mike Rogers, one of the most extreme right wing Republicans in Congress. Rogers is one of the Republican Party’s top Congressional fundraisers, supporting Republican candidates across the country. He has voted with the Bush administration over 93% of the time.
As reported in Politico, Rogers has his eye on the Whip position to fill the void left by Tom DeLay. Rogers’ ambitions also extend to the U.S. Senate and Michigan Governor’s seats, both places where he could do great damage. If we can defeat Rogers in this election, we can prevent this damage. This is only possible with your help.
1. A May 27, 2008 article on (click on “all 170 races with GOP incumbents”) highlighted a study analyzing the demographics of all 170 races with Democratic challengers to GOP incumbents, adjusted for “The Obama Effect.” According to this study, an Obama-topped ticket will make the 8th Congressional District 50.5% Democratic, and the 18th most competitive in the country.
2. The trend of Democratic voting in the 8th District has shot up 12% from 2002 to 2006. There is also increasing dissatisfaction among voters in the District, and many Independents and Republicans are unwilling to vote Republican this year.
3. My campaign has attracted a strong team of creative people who have proven themselves capable, with very limited financial resources, of generating a dynamic Web site and YouTube videos (Road Trip for Change, Foreclosed! The Crosby Mint Farm, On the Road to the Democratic National Convention, and a personal endorsement video with Marianne Williamson).
4. We have a well-organized and experienced field campaign, which is working closely with the Obama campaign.
5. Our campaign consultant Ken Christensen has successfully defeated six Republican incumbents.
I have a real chance to defeat Mike Rogers. With 60 days until November 4th, it is critical that we quickly generate enough money to produce radio, television and print ads, and make sure they are visible. Please visit our web site at and donate $2,300, $1,000, $500, $100 or whatever you can. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Please also share this message with your friends. Thank you for your time and your support!Sincerely,Democratic Nominee for Congress (MI-08)

Campaign Kick-Off Bob Alexander for Congress, Thursday July 24, 2008

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008



Change is coming to Mid-Michigan, and Bob Alexander is leading the way.

Bob believes Mid-Michigan deserves a representative who understands that the serious challenges facing its citizens require real solutions and immediate action. He wants to foster America’s energy independence, protect the environment, and safeguard Michigan jobs.

So when it came time to say goodbye to his 1995 Ford Escort – all 256,000 miles of it – Bob chose the Chevy Malibu hybrid: an American car driven by American innovation.

Made right here in the United States, the state-of-the-art Malibu Hybrid has a better MPG rating and a smaller carbon footprint than the Honda Accord. It reflects Bob’s dedication to American jobs, energy innovation, and environmental stewardship.

To kick off his campaign, Bob will take delivery of this new Chevy Malibu at Shaheen Chevrolet in Lansing at 9:00 AM on Thursday, July 24. From there, Bob will set off on his “Road Trip for Change,” visiting locations in all five counties of Michigan’s 8th District. Bob will share the campaign’s themes of American products, Michigan innovation, clean energy, and a clean environment. The day will finish with remarks at the GM Orion Assembly plant.

Bob, an East Lansing consultant and long-time community leader, is running for Congress because he knows Mid-Michigan demands a change after eight years of poor leadership under Mike Rogers and George Bush.

Bob will bring Michigan’s concerns to Washington, supporting working families and individuals, working for healthcare solutions, fighting for quality public education, and protecting our environment.
