MICHIGAN’S 8TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: Mike Bishop (R)

Challenger: Elissa Slotkin (D)

Current Polling: Mike Bishop (R) 48, Elissa Slotkin (D) 45 (Target-Insyght/MIRS, 10/17)

Why this race matters: In 2016, Mike Bishop won this blue-collar district in southern Michigan by a whopping 17%, with Trump winning by a 6.7% margin. A solid republican district, New Democrat-endorsed candidate Elissa Slotkin has closed the gap. If this seat flips, it will demonstrate Democrats’ ability to win back some of the Obama-Trump voters in the Rust Belt.
