Levin Statement on Michigan’s Eleventh District Results
PONTIAC, MI – Tonight, Congressman Andy Levin (D-Bloomfield Township) released the following statement on the results of the Democratic primary in Michigan’s new Eleventh District:
“Congratulations to Congresswoman Haley Stevens, who ran a strong campaign and will be the Democratic nominee for Michigan’s new 11th District. I will support her and work with her and others to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in Oakland County and across Michigan and the United States on November 8.
“I’m so proud of the campaign we have run, which truly has been people-powered. Words cannot express how grateful I am to everyone who worked so hard for the last several months – from the over 300 volunteers who knocked on 73,519 doors and the 500 volunteers who made 238,963 calls to every person who sent a postcard, put up a yard sign, chipped in with a donation, and so many more behind the scenes efforts. Together, we locked arms and worked side by side with enthusiasm and grit to engage our communities, answer the tough questions head on, and build a multi-racial, working class movement dedicated to creating a more just world. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
“Unfortunately, I was also the target of a largely Republican-funded campaign set on defeating the movement I represent no matter where I ran. I am humbled by neighbors throughout Oakland County and friends new and old across the country who stepped up to help me fight back until the very last minute.
“I will continue to speak out against the corrosive influence of dark money on our democracy.
