All candidates in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District election complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D), Paul Junge (R), and Joe Hartman (L) are running in the election for Michigan’s 8th Congressional District. Voters can now read Candidate Connection survey responses from all three candidates.

Ballotpedia asks all federal, state, and local candidates to complete a survey so voters can discover what motivates them on political and personal levels.

One question in the survey asks candidates to list three key messages of their campaigns. Here is one response from each candidate.

Slotkin: “I am focused on the issues my constituents ask me about the most: The price of health care and prescription drugs; protecting the water in our lakes and streams and coming out of our taps; creating good jobs and economic opportunity; and bringing some decency and civility to politics.” Read Slotkin’s full survey responses here.

Junge: “Support our families and a strong economy by opposing tax increases, stopping costly liberal regulations, and cutting wasteful spending to move toward a balanced budget.” Read Junge’s full survey responses here.

Hartman: “Decentralization of Political Power.” Read Hartman’s full survey responses here.

Michigan’s 8th Congressional district is one of 30 House Districts represented by a Democrat in 2020 that voted for Donald Trump (R) in 2016. Slotkin was first elected in 2018, defeating former Rep. Mike Bishop (R) 51%-47%.
