Nancy Cassis announces candidacy for Michigan's 11th Congressional District

Published On: Jul 12 2012 07:03:22 AM EDT

Republican Nancy Cassis hopes to fill Congressman’s Thaddeus McCotter’s seat in the special election this fall.

McCotter resigned last week from the 11th Congressional District and the state said it would hold a special election Sept. 5 to fill it.

Cassis, 68, of Novi, has now announced her plans for candidacy.

“When Thad McCotter failed to make the ballot, I answered the call to be the conservative voice for the citizens of the 11th Congressional district by mounting a write-in campaign,” Cassis said. “Now that McCotter has resigned and the election has been called, I want to make sure the citizens of this district have the representation they deserve for the remainder of this term. I know I can make a difference by fighting for conservative principles: working to create Michigan jobs, fighting to repeal ObamaCare, and reining in excessive government spending.”
State election officials estimate the cost of the special election to total $650,000 for the impacted local and county governments.
