In response to Mai Xiong and Peter Herzberg’s victories in the special elections for Michigan’s 13th and 25th House Districts, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“Today, Michiganders resoundingly rejected the dysfunction and extremism of Donald Trump and his MAGA minions by ensuring Lansing leadership is squarely in the hands of Democrats. While the MAGA Republican Party continues to play the losing hand by campaigning on Donald Trump’s extreme, unpopular agenda time and time again, Democrats defended the trifecta in Michigan by running on the issues that matter to everyday families so they can continue delivering record accomplishments for working people.

“These victories in critical battleground Michigan are only the latest proofpoint of Democrats’ continued momentum. In special election after special election, voters are turning out to reject Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans’ plans to ban abortion and make the ultra-rich even wealthier at the expense of working families. It’s clear that voters are energized to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in November – from the school board to the White House – so that we can continue making the progress that American families need and deserve.”
