Democratic Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin says she is “seriously considering” a bid to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate in 2024

Senator Debbie Stabenow’s announcement that she won’t seek another term in the Senate generated mass speculation around who will run for her seat next year. One of the names that keeps coming up on the Democratic side is Rep. Slotkin.

The third-term congresswoman represents mid-Michigan, the same region Stabenow once did before being elected to the Senate.

Slotkin says she’s interested in taking her pitch of strengthening Michigan’s economy across the state. But she plans to take her time in making her decision.

“To do that, at the state level, certainly interests me and so I'm taking a hard look at it, but it's not a simple decision. It's not easy. It shouldn't be taken lightly.”

For now, Slotkin says she hopes to work with the new Republican majority in the House to support the U.S. supply chain and veterans' issues.
