Take Action Michigan

MI-03, MI-07, MI-08

The new Congressional District map has resulted in more competitive seats for Democrats in Michigan. Two Dem seats that are in play still need defending and an open Dem seat has become much harder to win. There is one potential flip.

The possible flip is in the newly-configured M-03 district which went from R+5 to D+1. Hilary Scholten who challenged Republican incumbent Peter Mejjer in 2020 and lost by 6 points, is challenging him again. Elissa Slotkin's district, MI-07, shifted a bit more blue (R+4 to R+2) and is rated a Tossup, but Dan Kildee's MI-08 is now less Democratic-leaning at R+1. That race is also a Tossup.

MI-10 is an open seat, but it will be hard to hold onto because of the blue to red shift in redistricting. It's PVI is now R+3 and it's now rated Likely R by Cook. A Dem has not won in MI-10 since 2000. Michigan's primaries are August 2nd.
