Jocelyn Benson's campaign for the Democratic nomination for Secretary of State in 2010 seems to gain momentum every week.
Last week, friends had a fund-raiser for her in Washington, D.C. This week, she's picked up the endorsement of Woman Under Forty Political Action Committee, a non-partisan group that supports younger women who are barely represented in elected office.
Jessica Grounds, WUFPAC president, called Benson's candidacy "thrilling."
"She is a great role model for women in Michigan and across the country. Her extensive experience pertaining to election law and fair election practices makes her the best candidate for Michigan Secretary of State. We are proud to support Benson in her race for Secretary of State and believe that her talents and experience will ensure her victory in 2010."
Benson is a well-versed in election law, which she teaches at Wayne State University. She's a terrific speaker and a hard worker, too, as she travels from one end of this state to the other talking about election issues.
