State Representative Jon Hoadley (D-60) announced he is running for the 6th Congressional House District in Michigan which is currently held by Congressman Fred Upton (R-6). Upton held this seat since 1986.
Traditionally, Michigan’s 6th Congressional is a Republican seat; however, Upton’s 2018 win was very close: 50.2 percentage compared to 45.7 percent of the vote for the Democratic challenger.
Hoadley currently serves as the minority vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee. He is in his third term in the House, so he cannot seek re-election for the 60th House District in 2020.
