Eric Schertzing picks up key endorsements from Michigan women leaders in MI-08 Congressional race


The race to replace CNN guest star Mike Rogers in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District has four Democrats running. One of them, Ingham County Treasurer Eric Schertzing, picked up some key endorsements today from Michigan women leaders.

Here’s the list and it’s an impressive one:

  • State Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer
  • Former State Representative Joan Bauer
  • MSU Trustee Dianne Byrum
  • Ingham County Commissioner Rebecca Bahar-Cook
  • Ingham County Commissioner Carol Koenig
  • Ingham County Commissioner Deb Nolan
  • Ingham County Commissioner Dianne Holman
  • Ingham County Commissioner Kara Hope
  • Ingham County Commissioner Kathie Dunbar
  • Ingham County Commissioner Jessica Yorko
  • East Lansing City Councilmember Kathleen Boyle
  • East Lansing City Councilmember Susan Woods

Senator Whitmer released the following statement highlighting her reasons for supporting Schertzing:

We need and deserve real leadership in Washington, DC. Leaders who are focused on finding solutions for the American people– not adding to partisan noise. Eric is just that kind of leader. He is a problem solver, a champion for women and working people, and I’d be proud to have his progressive voice working on our behalf in Washington. He is clearly the best choice for Michigan’s 8th district, and I hope you’ll join me in voting for him on August 5th, and again in November.
