Julia Pulver

The state House 39th District, representing West Bloomfield and Commerce Township, has history of flipping back and forth between Republican and Democrats, depending on the candidates, and who is on the top of the ticket. Previously occupied by current Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown (D) and former Rep. Klint Kesto (R), it was held as a Republican seat in 2018 by Ryan Berman of West Bloomfield – because the Democratic candidate was accused (and pled guilty to) embezzlement. Dems want the seat back – and think they may have a candidate to flip the district back in 2020 with Julia Pulver of Commerce Township, who almost won the 15th state Senate district in 2018, losing to winner Jim Runestad, 51 percent to 48 percent, a longtime Republican district. She was outspent in that campaign, seven to one, and has sent out an email to followers to help her retire her debt so that she can “FlipMIBlue in 2020” meaning flip the state House Democratic.
