Kildee backs Slotkin in Michigan Senate race

News: Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) is endorsing Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s (D-Mich.) Senate bid, the latest sign that Democrats are coalescing behind Slotkin as their replacement for retiring Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.).

Kildee is the third member of the Michigan delegation to endorse Slotkin, joining Democratic Reps. Haley Stevens and Hillary Scholten.

While Kildee is retiring at the end of this term, he has pledged to remain involved in Michigan politics. Like Slotkin, Kildee is a Frontliner and has beat back GOP challengers in recent cycles.

“For the last five years I’ve seen Elissa Slotkin be one of the most effective and hardworking legislators in Congress,” Kildee said in his endorsement statement. “Elissa Slotkin is the best person to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate.”

Slotkin is considered the frontrunner in the Democratic primary race. On the GOP side, the contest is far more crowded. The NRSC is backing former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) in a field that also includes former Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.), businessman Sandy Pensler and former Detroit Police Chief James Craig.
