I regret that I need to end our campaign for Congress, as my challenge to the State’s decision not to place my name on the ballot was not successful.

Our campaign has always been about advancing economic equality and prosperity, equal rights, democracy, and environmental sustainability. In recent weeks we have also worked hard to strengthen particular rights of Michigan voters, and I regret that the judge’s decision on our case failed to support these rights.

I want to thank my wife, amazing volunteers, staff, and so many supporters who helped to build a strong campaign.

Thank you.

The work for social justice continues.

Why Congress?

I’m running for Congress because I know that Southwest Michigan can do better. I want to restore opportunity to the middle class. I want our children to have a brighter future. I’m running for Congress to get our economy working for the people and not only for the very wealthy. I will work for campaign finance reform, Medicare for All, education and job training and criminal justice reform. I’m running because I believe we need strong American leadership on climate change, in scientific innovation, and on global security.

We need to turn this country around and get our government working for the people. That'll take smart, committed, progressive leaders. I'm looking forward to voting tomorrow for Matt Longjohn for MI6 and Abdul El-Sayed for Governor of Michigan, to be part of the change. ... See MoreSee Less

Last night I had a long discussion with Matt Longjohn, and I enthusiastically endorse him as the best candidate to defeat Congressman Upton and to represent Michigan’s 6th District in Congress.

Over the last 16 or so months, when Matt first spoke with me about his interest in running for Congress, as we participated together in many campaign events, and in a number of conversations, I have been impressed by Matt’s values, vision and background. His career promoting public health demonstrates a commitment to making government work effectively for all the people, and through it he has built a perspective and set of skills that will serve him well in Congress. Matt has a broad and deep progressive agenda, for a strong economy that builds on all our strengths and from which all benefit, for universal, affordable healthcare, for ongoing efforts to address historic injustices and to advance equal rights, for American leadership on climate change, for a foreign policy that embodies the best American values, and more. Matt has a long family history in the 6th district, and he has built a strong campaign.

I ask those who have supported our campaign to now support Matt’s, and I urge all citizens of the 6th district to vote for Matt on August 7th and November 6th.
