ROCHESTER, Mich. – The Detroit Free Press today endorsed the re-election of Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI-8), citing her work in Congress “focused on practical problems” and “invested … in bipartisan initiatives.”
Referring to opponent Paul Junge, the Free Press wrote, “In the race against an incumbent with a lifelong record of non-partisan public service and genuine national security expertise, he is simply outclassed.”

In her first term in office, she has written bipartisan legislation to address PFAS “forever chemicals” that was enacted into law, and the Real Time Benefits Act to increase transparency in prescription drug prices, which passed the House with bipartisan support.
