As some are contemplating taking their political careers to new heights, others have ruled out running for the Senate. Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Oakland County) announced “I am unbelievably proud to represent Oakland County in Congress, the economic engine of the Midwest. After deep consideration, I have decided that I can best serve Michigan’s working families, manufacturers, students, and small businesses in my current role.” Other Democrats also ruling out a run are Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. Republican Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller has also said, “no,” as has former Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, while a Republican in the know said to expect “someone not currently in office” to announce a run. Mums the word on who this is – we could not break through the wall of silence on this one.
