The Michigan Democratic Party launched its first coordinated field office with President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign in metro Detroit, continuing the One Campaign strategy used in past cycles to support candidates up and down the ballot.

Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-MI 11) anticipates the Biden campaign will expand its ground game in Michigan in the coming months, emphasizing the importance of door knocking and grassroots efforts.

The office, located in Madison Heights and sharing space with a local plumbers’ union hall, highlights the significance of the labor vote in this year’s election. Former President Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, has also been targeting his message at union members.

U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Delaware), a Biden campaign co-chair, attended the opening and praised Biden’s support for unions, noting his efforts on behalf of the UAW and millions of families benefiting from a pro-worker and pro-union president.

Despite winning Michigan’s Democratic presidential primary with 81% of the vote, Biden lost around 13% of voters to an “uncommitted” option on the ballot.

Stevens emphasized the need to reach and engage with diverse voices in the area, acknowledging that some voters sat out the election but expressing the campaign’s desire to bring them back into the fold.

Protest campaigns have urged voters to withhold support for Biden due to his stance on Israel’s military operations in Gaza. Some insist Biden must call for a permanent ceasefire to earn their support, while others believe it is too late for Biden to win their vote.

The office opening reflects the campaign’s efforts to listen, engage, and lead with compassion and grace, focusing on bringing people together for the November election.
