Former Defense Department official Elissa Slotkin has been one of the Democrats’ top challenger candidates. She raised more than $3 million through the July 18th pre-primary disclosure deadline for her congressional campaign, and now brandishes a poll that posts her ahead of Republican Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Rochester/Lansing).
According to her Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research 8th District survey (9/17-20; 400 MI-8 likely voters), Ms. Slotkin has jumped out to a 47-43% lead over the two-term Congressman. Mr. Bishop was first elected here in 2014 after then-Rep. Mike Rogers (R) decided not to seek an eighth term. He won the competitive open seat contest with a 55-42% margin, followed by a decisive 56-39% re-election win. This central Michigan race promises to be close all the way to Election Day.
