Two Republicans now running for open Detroit-area House seat

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (AP) Republicans Rocky Raczkowski and Lena Epstein plan to seek a suburban Detroit House seat opening due to a retirement.
Raczkowski, who has previously run for both the U.S. House and Senate, made his announcement Monday in an email. He's a businessman, Army veteran and former state lawmaker.
Second-term Republican Rep. Dave Trott of Birmingham announced last week that he wouldn't seek re-election. The GOP-leaning 11th Congressional District includes parts of Oakland and Wayne counties and may become a bigger Democratic target.
Epstein earlier was running for U.S. Senate, but ended that bid Monday. She co-owns an automotive oil company and co-chaired President Donald Trump's successful Michigan campaign.
Two former members of the Obama administration are running -- Treasury official Haley Stevens and Homeland Security adviser Fayrouz Saad.
