Candidates endorsed by the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Political Action Committee saw positive results statewide during Tuesday’s primary election. Unofficial results show 91 percent of Chamber-endorsed candidates across 55 different races won their respective nomination, including wins in highly contested races for the 15th House District representing Dearborn (Abdullah Hammoud) and 30th District representing Utica and portions of Shelby Township and Sterling Heights (Diana Farrington). In total, the Chamber’s bipartisan endorsements included 27 Republicans and 25 Democrats.
“These results reflect the Chamber’s dedication to electing candidates who support a strong economy for Southeast Michigan,” said Jason Puscas, director of government relations for the Chamber. “Our elected leaders play a crucial role in Michigan’s comeback; we’re delighted to see so many candidates receive nominations who support that mission and the policies necessary to continue to move Detroit and the region forward.”
The Chamber will continue to advocate for common sense, pro-growth candidates and will release its endorsements for local, state, and federal office for the November election in the coming weeks. For more information, contact Jason Puscas at 313.596.0348.
