In Newly Open Seat, Momentum Grows Behind Haley Stevens with Teamsters Endorsement
Stevens, a voice for working families, earns first major union endorsement
BIRMINGHAM, Michigan — Today, Haley Stevens, chief of staff of the Auto Rescue and digital manufacturing executive, announced the endorsement of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in her bid for U.S. Congress in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District. This is the first major union endorsement of this race and comes shortly after this race has moved to a “toss up”.
Greg Nowak, President of Teamsters Joint Council #43 stated: “We are proud to endorse Haley Stevens for Congress. Haley has spent her career fighting for the rights of Michigan workers. As Chief of Staff of the Auto Rescue in the Obama Administration, Haley helped create Michigan jobs now and for future generations. Working families need Haley’s drive and experience in Congress.”
This endorsement comes as momentum continues to grow for the Haley Stevens for Congress campaign. Stevens previously outraised the incumbent two-to-one last fundraising quarter.
In response to receiving the endorsement, Haley Stevens said: “I’m proud to have the support of the Teamsters. Michigan’s working families need good-paying jobs, not the politics of Washington. In Congress, I will continue my work to grow our economy, create jobs with wages that people can raise a family on, and help our workers compete in the global market.”
