The 8th will introduce you to the voters who will be pivotal in deciding who controls the White House and Congress in 2021. It will tell the story – in real time – about what these voters believe, what they want from politicians, and why they vote how they vote.
Get out of your bubble and get into to The 8th — a toss-up district in a toss-up state.
In 2016, Donald Trump won the presidency with the help of once-reliably “red” places like Michigan’s 8th Congressional District. But in the 2018 midterms, politics in that district shifted left: A relatively unknown Democrat who’d never held elected office managed an upset victory over a Republican incumbent. Since then, that congresswoman — U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin — has emerged as a national political figure. And her criticism of the president threatens her prospects for a second term in Congress.
