Rep. Bill Huizenga of Michigan's 4th congressional district has his first challenger of the 2024 cycle. Democrat Chris Glasser, an investigator with Child Protective Services, has announced a campaign for Congress in this southwest Michigan district. Glasser says he grew up in Kalamazoo and is currently studying at Western Michigan University. His campaign platform includes increased transparency, expanding access to healthcare, and instituting congressional term limits. Though Glasser is running as a Democrat, he says he opposes the two-party system and supports ranked-choice voting. His campaign website can be found here.
This district is anchored by the cities of Kalamazoo and Holland. Huizenga was re-elected in 2022 with 54% of the vote against Democrat Joseph Alfonso. Huizenga has not yet revealed his plans for 2024, and has expressed interest in a campaign for U.S. Senate.
