Michigan Rep. Elissa Slatkin announced this week her intention to run for Senate in 2024.
Slatkin’s announcement comes as other viable candidates jumped at the opportunity to run after Stabenow said he would not run again.
“Today, I’m announcing my run to be Michigan’s next U.S. Senator,” Slatkin tweeted. “We need a new generation of leaders who think differently, work harder and never forget that we are *public servants*.”
In her first ad, Slatkin discussed her career up to this point, as well as what she brings to the table.
“Look, we all know America is going through something right now. We seem to be living from crisis to crisis. But there are some things that really need to be simple. We need a new generation of leaders who think differently, work harder, and never forget that we are public servants.
Today, I’m announcing my run to become Michigan’s next US Senator.

Although Slotkin teased a potential run weeks ago, the real surprise was who decided not to enter the race.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Rep. Haley Stevens, and state Sen. Prominent Michigan Democrats, including Mallory McMorrow, declined the chance to run to fill Stabenow’s seat.
As of now, no Republican challenger has entered either. Some potential candidates whose names have been floated include former Rep. Peter Meijer and former gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon.
Democrat Elissa Slatkin votes with Joe Biden at 100%.

If Slatkin somehow wins the general election, no one should expect him to bring some sort of “moderate” or “centrist” flavor to Washington because his record in the House of Representatives shows someone who can vote with conservatives.
FreedomWorks gave her a lifetime score of 2%.
Heritage Action was tough, they gave her a lifetime score of 0%, while Club for Growth was kinder with 4%.
