Dr Bob Lorinser
Michigan 1st Congressional District Primary

I'm Dr. Bob Lorinser, a diplomat, social worker, educator, Medicare/Medicaid Medical Director and currently still serving as a public health leader and family physician. My wife Peggy and I have called Northern Michigan and the UP home for 36 years.


My leadership is anchored in honesty, empathy, unity, and a passion for serving all citizens. I believe in the courage it takes to devise effective solutions to pressing issues.


My agenda prioritizes hardworking families and small businesses, promoting labor reform and ensuring livable wages. Expanding public education, housing, and childcare are also crucial to economic prosperity.


I am dedicated to promoting energy independence, while protecting the environment and addressing climate change. I will advocate for diplomacy to resolve international problems.


I strongly support protecting Social Security, expanding Medicare for all, and restoring Roe nationwide. A patient's room is far too small for a woman, her doctor, and the entire US government.


Healthcare is a basic human right. As the US spends 30% of its budget on healthcare, I offer immediate expertise as the sole Democratic family doctor in the House or Senate pushing Medicare for All.


It would be my greatest honor to bring our fight to Congress.

Callie Barr
Michigan 1st Congressional District Primary

Callie is a 5th-generation Michigander running for Congress in Michigan’s 1st District. Callie is a proud graduate of Cheboygan High School where she met her husband, Mat. After September 11, Mat enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served two tours in Iraq. Callie attended Central Michigan University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in secondary education. Callie moved with her husband five times in 15 years, raising two girls and eventually caregiving for Mat after he suffered combat injuries, including post-traumatic stress and a traumatic brain injury. 

Frustrated by the lack of support for active military members and returning veterans, Callie became involved in advocating for the military and their families with Blue Star Families and the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers. Callie then went on to receive a law degree, graduating with honors from the University of Michigan Law School so she could better advocate for policy changes at the federal level. Callie is running for office because MI-01 deserves a representative that is from Michigan and for Michigan.

Elisa Slotkin
US Senate for Michigan

Elissa has dedicated her career to serving the country she loves. Elissa was in New York City on September 11, 2001, and by the time the dust cleared, Elissa knew she wanted to go into national security to protect our homeland. She was recruited by the CIA to be a Middle East analyst, and within a year she was sent on the first of three tours in Iraq alongside the U.S. military. Her time in a combat zone led her to national security roles at the White House, where she worked as a civil servant, for whoever was the Commander-in-Chief. Elissa worked for President Bush as a member of his national security staff and was asked to stay on when President Obama took office. In the Obama Administration, she helped negotiate some of the Pentagon’s most sensitive national security matters from the fight against ISIS to the U.S. response to Russian aggression. Elissa, running on the issues that mattered the most to Michiganders; bringing down the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, bringing critical supply chains back to the U.S., creating jobs with dignity, and getting money out of politics, was first elected in 2018 in a R+4 seat. She was re-elected in 2020 as one of seven House Democrats to represent a seat Trump also won, and re-elected a second time in 2022 by nearly 6 points – her largest victory to date. Elissa is now running for the U.S. Senate to replace Sen. Stabenow (retiring) and to continue to be a voice for Michiganders in Congress."
