Progressive Turnout Project Congratulates Senator Debbie Stabenow and Haley Stevens on Michigan Primary Victories
Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan released the following statement regarding the Michigan Democratic Primary Election:
“Congratulations to Senator Stabenow and Haley Stevens on tonight’s victories in Michigan. For the past two months, Progressive Turnout Project has been talking with voters across the 11th Congressional District, and we look forward to doing everything we can to defeat Michigan Republicans up and down the ballot on November 6.”
“Senator Stabenow has been a true champion for Michiganders by fighting for priorities like maternity care in our health insurance plans, assistance for Michigan manufacturers and laborers, and protecting our Great Lakes. For those reasons and more we need to keep Debbie Stabenow in the Senate.”
“When Michigan was almost down for the count during the Great Recession, Haley Stevens stepped up to the plate as the chief of staff to the auto rescue. She helped President Obama make the tough calls that needed to happen to put Michiganders back to work. Haley has already delivered for Michigan and will be a great representative for the state in Washington.”
“Now that we have our nominees, Progressive Turnout Project is ready to roll up our sleeves, pound the pavement, and do everything we can to elect Debbie Stabenow and Haley Stevens in November.”
Progressive Turnout Project is on pace to spend at least $350,000 in Michigan’s 11th District as part of a previously announced 18 district field program. The organization has an office and staff based in Livonia.
