Gretchen Driskell had a victory in the Michigan primaries, winning Michigan's 7th Congressional District.

After her win, EMILY's List sent out a congratulatory statement.
“We are thrilled to congratulate Gretchen Driskell on her primary victory. As a city council member, the first woman mayor of Saline, and a representative in the Michigan state House, Gretchen has dedicated her career to serving the women and working families of Michigan. Gretchen now faces Republican extremist Tim Walberg, who has spent his tenure in Congress voting to strip access to affordable health insurance from millions of Americans and give tax breaks to the wealthy. In Congress, Gretchen will fight to protect access to quality, affordable health care and expand economic opportunity for Michiganders. Gretchen is the champion Michigan’s 7th District deserves and EMILY’s List is excited to help her flip this seat.”

EMILY's List is known as the nation’s largest resource for women in politics. They have raised over $500 million supporting pro-choice Democratic women candidates.
