So Far, Johnson Seems Secure As Dem Chair

Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lon Johnson appears to be in a strong position to win another term, several leaders in the party said Tuesday.

In the immediate aftermath of the losses Democrats suffered in the November elections - most acutely the loss of a seat in the state Senate and four seats in the Michigan House, but also losses in the governor, attorney general and secretary of state contests - there was considerable chatter in Democratic circles about whether to stick with Mr. Johnson for a second term.
