Elissa Slotkin

Democrat for MI-US Senate

Top Issues: Rights & Democracy, Safe Communities, Jobs & Economy, Health Care, Prescription Drugs

Election Outlook: Cook Political Report rating: Lean D.
Republicans still have no strong general election candidate to challenge the eventual nominee, which is still likely to be Rep. Elissa Slotkin even as the primary race has filled out. Her most formidable challenger there is actor Hill Harper, known for his role in The Good Doctor. The real threat in this race is that a political moderate, like Rep. Peter Meijer—who voted to impeach Donald Trump and lost his primary in 2022 because of it—makes it through the Republican primary.
