Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-Rochester, Rochester Hills, Holly, northern Oakland, parts of Livingston and Ingham counties), who is running in the newly-redistricted 7th District, with Lansing at its center, brought the Brinks truck to her campaign, raising over $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2022 – and a total of $6.9 million this election cycle. Without a primary opponent, she has over $6.5 million cash on hand. Her likely Republican opponent, state Sen. Tom Barrett (R-Potterville) raised less than $610,000 and has less than $440,000 on hand. Prognosticators are calling this race a toss up, but so far Barrett has only brought rhetoric, and Slotkin, a moderate Democrat who is methodically campaigning in the new district town by town, event by event, a formula that allowed her four years ago to turn a GOP leaning district to Blue.
