LIVONIA, Mich. (WXYZ) — U.S. Representative Haley Stevens (M-11) endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg Thursday.

"Michigan needs an economic champion in the White House, a leader who stands up for working families and can get an infrastructure deal done to unlock prosperity for all," said Congresswoman Haley Stevens. "I know Mike Bloomberg will help grow Michigan's manufacturing economy, because I worked with him in the past to create advanced manufacturing jobs. I'm endorsing Mike Bloomberg for president because he has the experience to unite the country and defeat Donald Trump this fall, and I am eager to work with him to tackle our toughest problems and strengthen the middle class, lower healthcare costs, and fight climate change."

Congresswoman Stevens represents MI-11, a highly competitive district that she flipped blue in 2018.

“Congresswoman Haley Stevens has been a leader on economic recovery and revitalization, and she sees through President Trump’s empty rhetoric,” said Mike Bloomberg. “She knows the minimum wage has been the same for 10 years and that job growth in Michigan has been anemic. I’m honored to have her support, and I’m ready to work with her to bring more good jobs with higher pay to all the Michiganders who have been shortchanged by the Trump administration.”

Stevens sits on the House Committee on Education & Labor, and the House Committee on Science, Space & Technology, where she also serves as Chairwoman of the Research & Technology Subcommittee. On these Committees, Stevens works to protect access to healthcare, promote manufacturing, expand educational opportunity, stand up for workers’ rights, and increase investment in critical research and development.
