Adam Hollier Seeks to Challenge Shri Thanedar for Detroit-area Congressional Seat

Former State Senator Adam Hollier, D-Detroit, is expected for officially announce his candidacy for Michigan’s 13th Congressional district. Hollier is seeking to challenge the current US House seat of US Representative Shri Thanedar, D-Detroit, currently serving his first term in the office.

“Detroit needs a Congressman who delivers, and we need it right now,” said Hollier in a statement posted on x (formerly known as Twitter).

“Today, I’m throwing my hat in the ring – to continue my lifetime of service, and deliver real results for this community.”

Hollier previously ran for the seat in 2022 and loss in the primary race filled with many Democrat Black candidates.

Wayne County Executive Warren Evans led a committee last year to select one candidate to endorse and back exclusively, concerned that too many candidates within the same racial background will split the votes of the Black community.

Other Black candidates in the race at the time included John Conyers III (the late Congressman John Conyers Jr.’s son), Sherry Gay-Dagnogo (former state representative, current Detroit School Board member), Michael Griffie (educator, attorney), Angela McIntosh (business owner), Sharon McPhail (attorney, former city council member), Toni Mua (social change advocate), Portia Roberson (CEO, Focus: Hope), and Lorrie Rutledge (business owner).

The truth is, what our community needs is very simple — someone who will listen, show up, and deliver,” Hollier says. “And that’s what I’ve always done. We’re tired of the promises and platitudes. We need results. So, if you’re ready for real leadership, chip in:”

The 13th Congressional district includes much of Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck, the Grosse Pointes, and some Downriver and western Wayne County cities.

Hollier is expected to officially announce his candidacy Tuesday afternoon at the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Detroit.
