Republican Businessman, Michael Markey, Announces His Bid To Become MI-03’s Next Representative
Grand Haven, MI- Today, Michael Markey, a Grand Haven businessman, announced his campaign to become the Republican Nominee for Michigan's 3rd Congressional District. Michael’s announcement makes him the immediate frontrunner to take on Congresswoman Hillary Scholten who narrowly won the seat in 2022. The 3rd Congressional District is seen as a key pick up for Republicans to maintain their majority in Congress.
“It is with great humility and excitement that I announce my campaign for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District,” said Michael Markey. “As a businessman, husband and father, I am concerned about the path our country is taking. We need a disruptor who will stand up to the Washington status quo that has gotten us into this mess. It is time for bold ideas to address inflation, usher in an era of energy independence, and disrupt the traditional ways of doing things in Washington.
“I am humbled by the support my campaign is already receiving and I look forward to campaigning against Congresswoman Scholten and her radical agenda that threatens our Michigan way of life.”
Michael Markey is a lifelong Michigander and entrepreneur. He started his first business- a claw machine at a local restaurant- when he was just 14-years old. On the heels of the 2009 financial crisis, Michael launched a successful investment firm. Michael’s days as an entrepreneur taught him how to disrupt the status quo with a result driven mentality. Michael and his wife Vanessa have three children, who Mike says challenge and delight them daily.
