Incumbent Elissa Slotkin (D) defeated Paul Junge (R) and Joe Hartman (L) in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District.
Slotkin was first elected in 2018 after defeating incumbent Mike Bishop (R) 51% to 47%. The 8th District is one of 30 House districts represented by a Democrat in 2020 that Donald Trump (R) won in 2016. In the 2016 presidential election, Trump defeated Hillary Clinton (D) 51% to 44% in the 8th District.
Both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) added this district to their target lists ahead of the election.
