Stakes rise ahead of 2024 election in Michigan as House Democrat announces retirement
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Competition is growing in Michigan's Congressional race as Democratic U.S. Representative Dan Kildee has announced he will be retiring next year after the end of his sixth term.
Democrats will be forced to defend yet another open House seat in the battleground state as a result. Democratic U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin also announced earlier this year she would not be seeking reelection, pursuing an open Senate seat instead.
Republicans already have signaled they will aggressively target the two open House seats in Michigan. A spokesperson with the National Republican Campaign Committee said the party is “looking forward to flipping this seat red.”
