Rep. Haley Stevens beats Levin in Democratic race

Rep. Haley Stevens defeated her Democratic House colleague in Michigan’s primary Tuesday night, edging out Rep. Andy Levin in a battle outside Detroit.

Stevens succeeded after Michigan lost a congressional seat and redistricting forced the two Democrats together, while Levin decided to leave a redrawn version of his current seat and run in the 11th District.

The battle between Levin, a progressive, and Stevens, a moderate, has drawn national and international attention as the latest flashpoint in the politicization of US-Israeli politics, with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and its new super PAC siding with Stevens and J Street. , a more liberal pro-Israel group that supports Levin. The expensive race also highlighted the ideological differences that have divided the Democratic Party nationally.
