to Haley's Campaign

"In 2020 I won re-election in the closest House race in Michigan. National Republicans launched their first negative digital ad against me the day after I was sworn in and are actively recruiting challengers against me. I was one of only five House Democrats to survive over two million in negative ads from Congressional Republicans’ largest Super PAC in 2020 and would not have been able to win without the resources to get my own message out in the expensive Detroit Media Market.
 

I am already getting prepared for another tough race in 2022 and the work starts now. Your support for my campaign will allow me to fend off potential deep-pocketed challengers in my wealthy, Republican district and start communicating with voters early."

EXPERIENCE

Haley Stevens was born in Rochester Hills, Michigan.  She holds a B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy, and an M.A. in Social Policy and Philosophy, both from American University.

Stevens has worked hard to further working relationships among industry, technology, and government. Still in her twenties, she became Chief of Staff for the U.S. Auto Rescue Task Force of the U.S. Department of Treasury during the Obama administration. This was the federal initiative responsible for restructuring the major auto manufacturers and saving 200,000 Michigan jobs. Stevens was involved in setting up the Office of Recovery for Automotive Communities and Workers and the White House Office of Manufacturing Policy.

 

She was first elected in 2018 following the retirement of David Trott (R). Stevens defeated Lena Epstein (R) in the general election, receiving 52 percent of the vote to Epstein's 45 percent. In 2020, as the incumbent, she defeated Republican Eric Esshaki, who ran on “pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-border security, and pro-Constitution,” by 2.4%.

 

ON THE ISSUES

“As Michiganders face a global pandemic, it is more important than ever to defend and strengthen the Affordable Care Act,” said Congresswoman Stevens. (http://stevens.house.gov/)

 “For too long, a career in STEM has felt unattainable for women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups,”

 

“A lack of transparency and accountability in the scientific community has also led to disturbing industry-wide culture of permissiveness toward sexual harassment. We must address these challenges and work to develop a diverse, inclusive STEM workforce that will help us compete in the global economy by cultivating talent from a wide range of backgrounds.” (http://stevens.house.gov/)

Congresswoman Stevens introduced the bipartisan American Manufacturing Leadership Act, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill will boost the manufacturing sector in Michigan and around the country by strengthening our nation’s largest investment in advanced manufacturing – the Manufacturing USA Program.

MICHIGAN POLITICS

Michigan was a battleground state in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. Donald Trump won the state by fewer than 11,000 votes in 2016. Although Biden won by nearly 150,000 votes in 2020, the state’s 14-members congressional delegation is split 50-50 between the parties. Stevens retained her seat by fewer than 11,000 votes in 2020. She has a unique challenge. The name “Romney” is a historic one in Michigan. Ronna Romney McDaniel, current RNC Chair and niece of Senator Mitt Romney, has made it a special project to return this seat to the “R” column. Holding it in 2022 will be crucial, difficult, and costly, and will require our full support.​
