    Dan Kildee

  • Dan Kildee is running for his fifth term in Congress, having first been elected in 2012. He currently serves as Chief Deputy Majority Whip, where he acts as a liaison among Members of Congress and the leadership to build support for legislation. In 2016, he secured the release of Amir Hekmati, a U.S. Marine veteran who had been held prisoner in Iran. He has secured federal funding to replace water pipes in Flint. He successfully led an effort to prevent a Canadian company from burying nuclear waste near the Lake Huron shoreline.

    Before serving in Congress, Kildee co-founded the Center for Community Progress, a national non-profit which works on urban revitalization. He founded the Genesee County Land Bank, which directed over $100 million in investment to Flint and which has been used as a model for land banks across America. He also served as Genesee County Treasurer and member of the Flint School Board.

    Kildee is endorsed by six of our partner organizations, including the AFL-CIO, Michigan Education Association, American Federation of Teachers, Clean Water Action, Sierra Club, and Between the Lines.

    Kildee is running against former state lawmaker Tim Kelly. President Donald Trump nominated Kelly for a position in the U.S. Department of Education; however, his nomination was withdrawn after it was revealed that he had made disparaging comments about Muslims and women on his blog.

    Dan Kildee is the most progressive candidate in this race.

Other Candidates

Also in this race are Brock Swartzle and Mary Kelly, the Republican-nominated candidates running for the court against McCormack and Welch. We strongly recommend not voting for either of these candidates. 

Mary Kelly has faced questions of nepotism involving her job in the same court where her husband is chief judge and fired a longtime public employee in what was clearly a case of political retribution because he refused to back her candidacy for judge. 

Swartzle has a long history of being a GOP operative, a lawyer who defended foreclosure companies, and was appointed to the Court of Appeals by former Gov. Rick Snyder under very shady circumstances that was called an act of “political patronage,” according to the Detroit Free Press.
