Kristen McDonald Rivet for Congress

In 2022, Kristen was elected to the Michigan State Senate, where she is the first Democrat in over a decade and the first woman ever to represent the Great Lakes Bay Region in the Michigan Senate.

In the State Senate, Kristen has made great progress for Michigan families, workers and children. She successfully led the charge to pass the largest tax cut for working families in Michigan’s history, and has introduced a plan to address the growing childcare crisis in our state. Kristen has fought to protect abortion rights for women, and, in one of her first acts in the State Senate, passed a commonsense gun violence prevention bill that requires safe storage of firearms around children.
