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.
