On Feb. 27, 2024, Michigan voters cast their ballots for the presidential primaries. As a swing state, Michigan has gotten lots of attention from campaigning candidates.

Joe Biden made an appearance in Detroit on May 19 at the NAACP Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner. He leads the Democratic party in Michigan primaries with about 81.1 percent of the Democratic votes. Following Biden, with 3 and 2.7 percent of the Democratic votes respectively, Marianne Williamson and Dean Phillips lost the primary election.

On the Republican side of the Michigan primary election, Donald Trump led with about 68.1 percent of the republican votes. Trump won over Nikki Haley (26.6 percent), Ron DeSantis (1.2 percent) and several other candidates who received less than one percent of the Republican votes.

On May 30, 2024, Trump was found guilty by a New York jury on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. A convicted felon can run for presidential office but future polls will display public opinion on the matter. Nov. 5, 2024 is the Michigan general election when Trump and Biden will go head to head in the polls. The Communicator will continue to cover the presidential election as school resumes after summer break.
