Eric Esshaki is an attorney and conservative Republican currently running for United States House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections to unseat partisan Democrat Haley Stevens. He unsuccessfully ran against Stevens in 2020, though the margin was closer than expected.

2020 U.S. House election in Michigan's 11th district

Esshaki announced in late October 2019 his bid for U.S. Congress to challenge in 2020 Haley Stevens,[1] a left-wing Democrat elected in the 2018 midterms after lying about her record,[2] as documents showed.[3]

After Democrat governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer had enacted totalitarian policies that hindered Esshaki from being able to collect sufficient petition signatures for his name to appear on the primary ballot, the latter filed a lawsuit against Whitmer, Elections Director Jonathan Brater, and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.[4] Around a month later in May 2020, Esshaki wrote an op-ed on Plymouth Voice declaring victory.[5]

Republican primary

In a heavily contested Republican primary, Esshaki won with a plurality of 31% of the votes cast.[6]

Potential 2022 rematch

Esshaki announced on November 6, 2021 that he would seek a rematch against Rep. Stevens:[7]

This past year, the radical Left has proven just how much they can try to run America into the ground.

I am running for Congress again because the people of Michigan have been left behind.

—Eric Esshaki, November 2021
