Slotkin announces run for U.S. Senate

The speculation is over. Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-Lansing) hopes she is serving her last term in the House of Representatives.

On Monday, the three-term U.S. Representative announced she is running to be Michigan’s next U.S. Senator.

“We need a new generation of leaders that thinks differently, works harder, and never forgets that we are *public servants*,” posted Slotkin. “I’ve never taken corporate PAC money, and I’m not starting now. Our Senate campaign will therefore be powered by real people chipping in what they can.”

She then included a donation link to her campaign.

Slotkin’s announcement follows intense speculation about who would seek to replace U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow after she announced in early January that she would not seek reelection in 2024.

Almost immediately, Slotkin’s name was at the top of the list because of her reputation to attract independent voters. Slotkin now represents Michigan’s new 7th Congressional District, which includes all of Ingham, Clinton, Shiawassee and Livingston Counties, as well as parts of Eaton, Oakland and Genesee Counties.
