    Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin raised more than $1.3 million in the first quarter, swamping her likely Republican challenger in Michigan’s newly configured 7th Congressional District, Tom Barrett, while growing her war chest to $5.5 million. Slotkin, first elected in the 2018 Democratic House wave by beating a GOP incumbent, is bracing for a fight in a new swing district, which, as drawn, slightly favors Republicans. But the congresswoman remains confident about her prospects in a midterm election shaping up as a rebuke of President Joe Biden. In detailing figures first shared with the Washington Examiner, Slotkin’s campaign emphasized that 89% of the $1.3 million raised flowed from grassroots donors who contributed $100 or less, with 0% coming from corporate political action committees. OHIO GOP SENATE RIVALS GIBBONS AND MANDEL TAG-TEAM IN JABS AT PRO-VANCE POLL Slotkin’s first-quarter haul more than doubled the money raised by Barrett, a state senator who is expected to emerge from the Aug. 2 primary.

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Electric vehicle battery maker LG Energy Solution plans a $1.7 billion expansion in western Michigan that will add up to 1,200 jobs by 2025, officials announced Tuesday. The project at the company’s site in Holland, located about 155 miles (249 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, was approved for $56.5 million in state grants and a 20-year tax break worth $132.6 million. Michigan Economic Development Corp. CEO Quentin Messer Jr., who chairs the Michigan Strategic Fund, said the expansion will quintuple the plant’s ability to produce battery components. The average wage will be $1,257 a week, or about $65,000 annually, plus benefits. “We look forward to the incredible impact this project will have on the region’s economy, small businesses and workforce for generations to come,” Messer said.

The company, which is headquartered in South Korea, could begin hiring later this year. It manufactures large lithium-ion polymer battery cells and packs for electric vehicles and other applications.

    Jurors soon will hear from a pivotal informant who approached the FBI about a band of antigovernment extremists, a tip that eventually led to charges in an incredible plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Prosecutors signaled that the informant, known as “Big Dan,” will testify Friday in federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after defense lawyers finish questioning an FBI agent. Adam Fox, Barry Croft Jr., Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta are charged with conspiracy. Prosecutors say they turned their anger toward government in 2020 into a plot to kidnap Whitmer at her vacation home because of restrictions she imposed during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. It won’t be the first time that Dan has testified about his work for the FBI. In 2021, he appeared in state court in a separate but related case involving members of a militia, the Wolverine Watchmen, who are charged with assisting in the scheme. Wearing a recording device, Dan talked to Fox, who is described as a leader of the plot, “nearly every day” for about four months until...

As warmer weather arrives in the Upper Midwest, “Secure MI Vote,” the group behind the petition drive, is starting to dispatch hundreds of signature-gatherers across the state to festivals, parades, farmer’s markets and outdoor sporting events.

    New York (CNN Business)Workers in the Michigan auto industry could lose up to $51 million in wages this week, due to the trucker protest at the US-Canada border, according to Anderson Economic Group. The lost wages are a result of the shutdowns of the Blue Water and Ambassador bridges coupled with shutdowns at identified plants in Delta, Michigan and Ingersoll, Brampton, Windsor, Oakville, Cambridge and Woodstock Ontario. The shutdowns on the Canadian side affect the operation of part plants in Michigan. The calculation of lost wages also takes into account the impact on suppliers and transit workers -- many who work on hourly wages."This is a serious disruption with significant human impacts," said Patrick Anderson, CEO of Anderson Economic Group. "With the industry already short-handed and production lines awaiting parts, any further interruption is very costly." US business leaders sound the alarm on US-Canada border blockadeCanada does not have its own auto industry. Instead, US automakers like GM (GM), Ford (F), and Stellantis run the plants there. Anderson Economic Group, which specializes in auto industry analysis, also factored in affected...
    The second member of the far-right Wolverine Watchmen militia group has agreed to plead guilty, and will testify against four co-conspirators who plotted to kidnap and harm Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in the fall of 2020.  Kaleb Franks, 27, of Waterford Township, about 40 miles from Detroit, is scheduled  on Wednesday to plead guilty to kidnapping conspiracy in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids. The charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.  Franks was one of six Wolverine Watchmen members arrested on October 8, 2020 for allegedly hatching the plot to snatch Whitmer because they were upset with Michigan's COVID-19 restrictions.   Others include Adam Fox of Potterville, 40 - the alleged ringleader - truck driver Barry Croft of Bear, Delaware, 44; Daniel Harris of Lake Orion, 24; Brandon Caserta of Canton, 33; and Ty Gerard Garbin of Hartland Township, 25.

    (CNN)Debunked election fraud claims made in Michigan by former President Donald Trump's legal team ended up in a draft executive order directing the military to seize voting machines nationally, the state's top election official said on Wednesday.Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said that she shared the information with the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.In a letter to the committee, Benson also raises questions about whether former Trump attorney Sidney Powell accessed a report that was supposed to be under seal. It detailed meritless election fraud claims in Antrim County, Michigan, and Powell included it in a filing to the US Supreme Court as part of the broader effort to overturn Joe Biden's victory. "It's a red flag that [Powell] somehow had access to this report, wrongly, and submitted it as part of a formal filing to the US Supreme Court as part of this very coordinated effort to interfere with and overturn the election results," Benson told CNN.An attorney for Powell did not respond to a request for comment.Read MoreBenson says that...

    The Michigan woman who tried to hire a hitman through a website to kill her ex-husband has been sentenced to seven to 20 years in prison.  Wendy Lynn Wein, 52, of South Rockford, pleaded guilty on November 12 to using the RentAHitman.com site to hire someone to whack her ex-husband and for using a computer to commit a crime in July 2020.  She was sentenced to seven to 20 years in prison on Thursday and will be credited the 545 days she's already spent in jail.
