Eric Esshaki published an op-ed in the Plymouth Voice discussing his victory against Governor Whitmer in Court.
Eric Esshaki, a Birmingham Republican running in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, with a strong desire to challenge U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens, D-Rochester Hills, sued Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Elections Director Jonathan Brater, last month contesting the signature requirement.
A federal judge has rejected a request from the state to suspend an order that allows candidates running for elective office in Michigan amid the COVID-19 outbreak to submit only half the normally required signatures to qualify for the ballot.
Eric Esshaki is a first generation American. His story is like a lot of Americans who chase and live the American Dream. He’s running for Congress to ensure that current and future generations will have the same opportunities that he has had to achieve that Dream.
