As we approach Election Day on November 6, Stateside is interviewing congressional candidates around the state about the issues most important to them.

Debbie Dingell is the incumbent Democrat in Michigan’s 12th Congressional District. She has represented the district since 2015.

Congresswoman Dingell believes there are numerous important challenges ahead, but she said her primary concern is health care.  

“I’m a very strong believer that every American’s got a right to quality, affordable health care. We have kept the administration from totally destroying [the Affordable Care Act]. Health care will be the number one issue that comes back in the next Congress,” Dingell said.
