Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack (MDP endorsed) overtook incumbent candidate Brian Zahra (R) last week for the most Facebook “likes”. McCormack, a University of Michigan Law School Dean, now has 1,625 likes to Zahra’s 1,497. Although Facebook likes are an unproven indicator of potential election success, the recent surge in support for McCormack stems from her earned media and strong field campaign, which is a grassroots effort perhaps unprecedented for a Supreme Court race. The point is: She is gaining momentum, and fast.
