TARGET PRACTICE


“Turncoat” Republicans aren’t the only politicians with targets on their back heading into 2022. According to numerous political reports, the National Republican Congressional Committee has a list of 47 Democratic incumbents they are looking to take down in next year’s midterm election as they seek to return the House of Representatives to the Republican fold – including 29 districts that either didn’t back President Joe Biden, or supported their incumbent representative by five points or less, and will look to tie them to Biden’s agenda. On the list? Both Congresswomen Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Commerce Township, western Oakland and Wayne counties), and Elissa Slotkin (D-Rochester, Rochester Hills, northern Oakland, parts of Livingston and Ingham counties). Slotkin, a former CIA analyst and senior Pentagon official, was recently named chairwoman of the Intelligence and Counterterrorism Subcommittee within the House Committee on Homeland Security – which since the insurrection January 6, has an even greater spotlight. She also has an announced opponent for 2022, Mike Detmer, who ran in the 2020 Republican primary. He has a history of embracing armed groups like the Proud Boys – of Trump and January 6 fame. No word yet on who might want to get in the ring with Stevens.
