Michigan’s new redistricting map makes the state a battleground for both parties. Multiple members of Congress have decided to run in newly remapped districts, some will face off against fellow incumbents and millions have been raised in multiple races.
The Michigan race with the most campaign funding is the 13th Congressional District, a seat left open by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) who decided to run in the 12th District, which includes some of her former constituents. The 13th District race has brought in over $6.5 million in fundraising so far this cycle as of the end of March, new Federal Election Commission records show.
The majority of that money has come from Thanedar Shri Thanedar, a Democratic state representative who put $5 million of his own money into his campaign and has only spent $145,554, campaign finance filings show. Thanedar is an entrepreneur who previously won the race for Michigan’s state representative in 2020, raising $443,220 with almost 99% coming from his own pocket. He also poured $10 million of his own money into an unsuccessful bid for governor in 2018.
