Here’s What Happened in Key Michigan Congressional Districts

11th Congressional District  

Democratic Haley Stevens has defeated Republican Lena Epstein in Michigan's 11th congressional district race, giving the party another pickup. 


8th Congressional District 

Democrat Elissa Slotkin beat two-term Republican Rep. Mike Bishop in the eighth congressional district contest. 

During the campaign, Slotkin often spoke of the importance of preserving health care. She got personal in an ad called "Farm" featuring her mom, who battled stage 4 ovarian cancer before passing away in 2011. 

The ad, which is a six-figure buy running on Detroit broadcasts, concludes with Slotkin criticizing Bishop for his vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

"So, when I saw Congressman Bishop smiling at the White House after voting to gut protections for pre-existing conditions, something inside me broke," Slotkin said. "I'm running for Congress, and I approve this message because Mr. Bishop, that's dereliction of duty and it's a fireable offense." While Slotkin narrates this portion of the ad, video footage of Bishop smiling at the White House on May 4, 2017 plays.


"I believe Elissa will be bringing a new spirit of mission and focus, and she is a problem-solver," said Slotkin volunteer Susan Anzicek. "I expect her to do great things because she's worked with both Democrats and Republicans and that's what we need."
