“I got into this race after I watched the state of Michigan help elect Donald Trump. For decades now, cynical so-called leaders have used fear and mistrust to divide us against each other while running a con game, in which all benefits of economic growth have flown straight into the pockets of the very wealthiest Americans.
We came out in huge numbers today to say that we’re onto the con. People responded to a positive campaign about high quality jobs with living wages, excellent education for every child, and health care and a dignified retirement for all. I will be forever grateful that the voters of the 9th District elected me to be their representative in Congress. I can’t even express how excited I am to go to Congress to help build a more just, inclusive America where workers share fairly in our prosperity.”
