Houghton, MI – After running a strong grassroots campaign, Ken Summers, Democratic candidate for state representative, lost his race for the 110th House District to Republican candidate Greg Markkanen. In response, Summers issued the following statement:
“Thank you so much to all of our staff, volunteers, and supporters. I’ve called and congratulated Greg on his victory in this race to represent the hardworking families of the Western U.P.
“While knocking doors and talking to voters, I heard from seniors who have to choose between the medicine they need to live and food. I talked to parents who think we need to better fund our public schools. These issues aren’t going away in Lansing. Although I won’t be serving as state representative, I’ll be sure to keep working to make certain that Michigan families have access to everything they need to succeed.”
