Hundreds of Detroit Democrats met Thursday evening at the Triumph Baptist Church in Detroit to hear Mildred Gaddis, host of Inside Detroit on AM 1200/99.9 FM WCHB, strategy for Democrats to use in Michigan to ensure President Obama‘s re-election in November, starting with the GOP Primary on February 28th.
At a rally Mildred Gaddis told the crowd to vote for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul for president at the Feb. 28 presidential primary.
By voting for Paul, a Republican, they hope to derail Mitt Romney’s primary performance in his native state and force Paul to stay in the race and run as an independent.

“There is a $10-million election taking place next month with our tax dollars,” said WCHB radio host Mildred Gaddis. “Help me and help Ron Paul get all the votes he can.
“They can’t control this. He’s driving them crazy. We need him to run as an independent, shaving off votes from the Republican.”
Voters in Michigan don’t have to register as a Republican, Democrat or independent. And although it is frowned upon, partisan voters can cast ballots for their opponents in the primary, just to create a bit of chaos.

“This is Romney’s home, and if he comes here and loses — which we can help him do — his campaign is over,” Johnson said.
