In the wake of Rep. David Trott’s (R-Birmingham) surprise retirement announcement at the end of last week, three Republicans are entering the new open race. US Senate candidate and former Trump Michigan co-chair Lena Epstein has decided to exit the statewide race and run for the open congressional seat. State Rep. Klint Kesto (R-Oakland County) is also a new congressional candidate, along with former state Rep. and US Senate nominee Rocky Raczkowski who served as state House Majority Leader before exiting to run unsuccessfully for Senate in 2002. All three announced their intentions yesterday. More Republicans are expected to round out what will become a crowded open seat primary field.
