It was expected that Democratic incumbent Haley Stevens would win the Michigan 11th Congressional District Democratic primary against incumbent Andy Levin.

AP declared Stevens, the winner at 10:46 p.m. ET.

Have a peek at-

In the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats won back the House of Representatives, and that’s when both Stevens and Levin were elected. However, the redistricting process has pitted them against one another, and the outcome of this race will determine which of them runs for a third term this coming November.

Both Stevens and Levin ran very different campaigns in the primary, with Stevens presenting himself as more centrist and Levin as more progressive.

Ultimately, Stevens had a financial advantage over Levin heading into the primary election. According to their most recent federal filings, Stevens has nearly $1.5 million, and Levin has $726,000.

Levin, however, benefited from having a more well-known name in the industry. His late uncle, Senator Carl Levin, was a member of the Senate, and his late father, Sander Levin (D-Mich.), served as a representative for the district for over three and a half decades before he was elected to the House in 2018.

Pro-Israel groups like J Street‘s PAC, which backed the more left-leaning Levin, and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s PAC, which backed Stevens, paid attention to this race.

After two previous victories in more competitive districts, Stevens has an easier path to reelection this year thanks to Michigan’s Democratic-leaning 11th District.
