Campaign

The economy was issue #1. The unemployment rate was 7% in July, compared with a 5% rate nationwide. Pessimism about the state's economic future has left Michigan ranked 49th nationally between 2000 and 2005 in retaining young adults. Detroit lost a million residents since its heyday.

Bouchard claimed that the incumbent has accomplished nothing, dubbing her "Do-Nothing Debbie."[1] President
