FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING

July 26, 2017

Congressional candidate Haley Stevens, running for Michigan’s 11th District (Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills), is raising money as fast as she talks. The Democratic hopeful has taken in more than $320,000 since she announced her bid in April for the seat currently held by Republican David Trott. About $210,000 of her contributions have come in through ActBlue, a PAC that uses an online fundraising platform to help Democratic candidates. Trott, no slouch himself, added more than $334,000 to his campaign between January and June 30, including about $154,000 in the last quarter, according to reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission. With more than a year to go until the 2018 General Election, it’s U.S. Senate candidates, however, who have the largest war chests. Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, who has more than $5.8 million cash on hand, raised about $2.1 million in the last quarter, with her GOP challenger Lena Epstein, of Bloomfield Hills, raising more than $460,000; and potential Senate candidate Rep. Fred Upton of St. Joseph raising about $356,000. Meanwhile, Congressman Mike Bishop (R-Rochester Hills) raised nearly $275,000 in the last quarter, bringing his cash on hand to almost $394,000. Democrat Darlene Domanik of Brighton, who is also running for the 8th District seat, took in about $13,500.
