The race to fill the U.S. House seat in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District is favoring Republican Peter Meijer.

Meijer holds double-digit leads over Democratic challenger Hillary Scholten in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District representing portions of Barry, Kent, Calhoun, Ionia and Montcalm counties.

Still, Meijer explained, “It’s critical that we wait until the votes are counted. So, we have no declaration yet, but we are so proud of the outpouring of support that we’ve received from the community so far.”

An Iraq War veteran, the Grand Rapids native is focused on creating a strong business environment. He’s pro-life, supports the Second Amendment, religious freedom and the Constitution.

He’d fill the seat held by former Republican turned Libertarian U.S. Representative Justin Amash.
