Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin Running for U.S. Senate

Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan announced Monday that she is running for U.S. Senate in 2024. Slotkin is looking to succeed her fellow Democrat, Sen. Debbie Stabenow who is retiring after four terms in office.

Slotkin was first elected to the 8th congressional district in 2018, defeating incumbent Republican Mike Bishop by about 4%. Narrow reelection wins followed again in 2020 and 2022. Her 2022 run was in the 7th district, the best fit after redistricting. This competitive district, in the southcentral part of the state, includes Lansing, the state capital.

Nine current House members - six Democrats and three Republicans - have said they are retiring from the House. Including Slotkin, all but two are looking for a promotion to the U.S. Senate. Indiana Republican Victoria Spartz has not announced any future plans, while Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline will be resigning his seat later this year.
