Michigan’s 12th Congressional District Democratic Party has endorsed Debbie Dingell for election to the next Congress. Dingell is tonight’s keynote speaker at a dinner celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Women in Learning and Leadership program at the UM-Dearborn.

“Debbie has the passion and experience needed to represent the working men and women with whom she has stood shoulder-to-shoulder in the fight for Michigan jobs,” said Mark Gaffney, President of the 12th Congressional District Democratic Party. “Her commitment to the issues that are important to Michigan families, like making education affordable and accessible, is just one of the many reasons we believe she is the best person to represent us in the halls of Congress.”

“I’m so proud and grateful to receive this endorsement,” said Dingell. “I look forward to continuing to fight for the issues that matter most to the 12th Congressional District Democrats and me: job creation, access to healthcare, and quality education that is affordable and accessible.”
