The seat is currently occupied by David Trott. He has announced his retirement. Haley won the primary election against several very well qualified opponents. Haley, herself, is incredibly qualified. Her most impressive accomplishment was being chief of staff for Steven Rattner who was in charge of the task force which saved the auto industry.
The district is considered flippable by all political observers. I view this race as important, not only because Haley can win, but also because of Haley's opponent, Lena Epstein. Epstein is a unabashed sycophant for Trump. She is proud of the fact that she headed the Michigan For Trump campaign. She advocates "repeal and replace" Obamacare which is code for REPEAL. After the Access Hollywood tape she said that she would not want Trump to be her child's Sunday school teacher, but he was not running to be a Sunday school teacher. I could go on. I am horrified by the thought that Epstein could represent, my friends, neighbors and Michiganders in general.
Please see the invitation below. I hope you can make the event. If you can't make it, please consider contributing to Haley at Haleystevensforcongress.com. I am asking even my non Michigan contacts to support this race which has national importance. There are other important things you can do, First, of course,volunteer. Second, let every one you know who lives in Haley's district know about this race and encourage them to help get out the vote. Third, pass this message on to everyone you know outside of the district who might be interested..
There is only one pathway out of the national nightmare we are living through, namely win in November. Haley and others like her can make it happen if we all pitch in. Thank you in advance for your support.
PS: We are blessed with another incredible congressional candidate from this area, Elissa Slotkin. She, too, can and will flip her seat. Kathryn and I have never worked harder for two candidates with one exception, Barack Obama. Hopefully our meager efforts will help our candidates win just as we got President Obama elected.
