State Sen. Marty Knollenberg (R-Oakland County), son of former Congressman Joe Knollenberg (R), announce yesterday that he would not enter the open 11th Congressional District campaign choosing to run for re-election to the state Senate. The Republican field is already crowded, featuring former one-term Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, ex-state House Majority Leader Rocky Raczkowski, state Rep. Klint Kesto (R-Pontiac), and businesswoman and former Trump Michigan co-chair Lena Epstein who left the Senate race to enter the open House contest. This will likely be a competitive race, but the eventual Republican nominee will have the advantage. Rep. David Trott (R-Birmingham) is retiring after two terms.
