Elissa Slotkin wins a second term in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District

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.
