Women Vote Launches New MI-08 Radio Ad Contrasting Slotkin and Bishop’s Records of Service

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List independent expenditure arm Women Vote launched “Who Pays the Price,” an ad in MI-08 that lays out Rep. Mike Bishop’s record of voting for big drug company interests, after receiving big contributions from them.

The ad can be heard here and will begin running today in the Detroit and Lansing markets.

“The difference between Elissa Slotkin and Mike Bishop and their records of service illustrates why Michigan voters have an easy choice on Election Day,” said Christina Reynolds, vice president of communications at EMILYs List. “While Elissa Slotkin has spent her life serving her country, Mike Bishop served special interests. Elissa Slotkin will continue to serve her community well in Congress.”


2011. Ten days after leaving the Michigan State Senate — Mike Bishop joins a lobbying firm. Then Bishop ran for Congress and took over a hundred thousand from Big Pharma and voted to give them billions in special tax breaks, as they raised prices for prescription drugs. Congressman Bishop serves the special interests.

With Elissa Slotkin it’s a very different story of service.  That same year in 2011, after serving three tours in Iraq – alongside our military – under Republican and Democratic Presidents, Slotkin joins the Department of Defense. It’s why we need Elissa Slotkin in Congress. She’ll take on the special interests and crack down on prescription drug company price-gouging.

Elissa Slotkin served our country. She’ll always serve Michigan in Congress.
