President Obama endorses Michigan candidate for Congress

President Obama endorsed a Michigan U-S House candidate today.

Suzanna Shkreli was among 30 House candidates endorsed by President Obama.

Shkreli  is running for Michigan’s 8th District seat against Republican incumbent Mike Bishop. The 8th District runs from Ingham County to Oakland County.

Shkreli  says she thinks her dedication to middle class families is what brought her to the president’s attention.

“I can’t wait to carry on his fight to Congress. The fight that he started and has carried on through his term for middle class families.”

President Obama’s endorsements come on the heels of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s falling poll numbers. FiveThirtyEight – a group that uses polling and demographics data to predict election outcomes – has recently shown Clinton’s chances of winning Michigan to be in the 90s
