(Canton, MI) – Today, Whittney Williams of Canton, Michigan officially announced her campaign for Congress in Michigan’s 11thCongressional District. Whittneymost recently served as the Director of Diversity for the 11thCongressional District Republican Committee.
“I am running for Congress because I love our country, believe in the American Dream, and want to fight back against the radical left’s socialist agenda,” said Whittney Williams. “This country has given me everything, and I hope to have the opportunity to give back by defending the Constitution and our fundamental American values.”
“The people of Michigan’s 11thCongressional District deserve a representative who shares their values and fights for common sense solutions, not a phony moderate like Haley Stevens who votes lock-step with the liberal ‘Squad’ and Speaker Pelosi nearly 100 percent of the time,” said Scott Hagerstrom, Chief Strategist for the Whittney Williams for Congress campaign and former Michigan State Director for the 2016 Trump campaign. “Whittney’s story epitomizes the true American experience of hard work and optimism, and her authenticity and diligence will enable her to build a robust campaign that will be fully capable of flipping the district.”
