Democrat Debbie Dingell Accepts She Will Not Win Senate Race

 April 13, 2023

Representative Debbie Dingell, a Democrat from Michigan, was considered to be one of the frontrunners to take the Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Debbie Stabenow, but she has resigned herself to the fact that such an outcome is not meant to be.

She has announced that her hypothetical run for the Senate will remain just that for now.

Dingell said that she feels she can provide more value to the people who vote for her if she stays and works for the people in her congressional district. She said:

After much consideration, I have decided that I can best serve Michigan and our nation as a member of the U.S. House. Because, bluntly, I love my job. I love my district. And most importantly, I love my constituents.

"I look forward to continuing my work to represent the people of Michigan’s 6th district," she said, adding that she intends to keep delivering solutions "for seniors and working families, in addition to working on bringing the supply chains home and boosting manufacturing."
