Michigan secretary of state candidate Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, called on University of Michigan students Thursday night to help get her campaign message out to voters. Benson is down in the polls, but popular among young voters. "The real secret weapon of our campaign is all of you," she told the crowd. "Just like in 2008 when your generation elected a president, in 2010 you will have an opportunity to ensure that the next generation of leadership in Michigan is one that can directly help you."

For good measure, here's another photo I shot of Jocelyn Benson and state Rep. Alma Wheeler Smith, D-Salem Township, back in April at the Michigan Democratic Party Endorsement Convention in Detroit. That was the day she earned her party's endorsement and subsequently secured the nomination in August to run for the open seat.
