DETROIT – On Thursday, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) released the following statement regarding her decisive victory in her re-election bid to represent Michigan’s new 12th Congressional District: 

“I am so grateful for every single voter who turned out and voted for a brighter future for our communities in the new 12th Congressional District and across the state of Michigan. I thank the residents of the Tenacious 12th for putting their faith and trust in me to represent them with 70 percent of the vote. This Election Day, people across the state voted for joy, justice, and progress. Our neighbors sent a strong message that we will not allow hate to divide us.

“I am proud of our grassroots direct-voter contact focused campaign. We made it a priority to talk with our neighbors about the importance of turning out to vote to protect reproductive and voting rights, along with electing candidates who are rooted in justice-oriented values up and down the ballot, from school boards and judicial candidates to the Governor. For the first time in 40 years, Democrats will hold a majority in the Michigan Senate. In addition, Democrats will control all statewide executive offices and the Michigan House. The 12th Congressional District helped make this happen and I could not be more proud of our neighbors.

“During the general election, our team made 655,684 direct calls, messages and connections with voters in the 12th Congressional district. This is in addition to knocking nearly 30,000 doors and making over 120,000 phone calls to voters during the primary election.

“Thank you to every single person who worked so hard to make these important wins a reality. Thank you to every voter we met on their doorstep and phone line. Thank you to my amazing team for your hard work and dedication.

“To the Tenacious 12th, I cannot thank you enough and I look forward to working hard on your behalf in the 118th Congress.”
