Former United States Senator Carl Levin Endorses Rep. Tim Greimel for Congress

AUBURN HILLS, MI — Tim Greimel, State Representative and Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, has received the endorsement of Former United States Senator Carl Levin.

Rep. Greimel, like Former Sen. Levin, got his start in public office at the local level. While Tim Greimel served on a local school board, Former Senator Levin served 8 years on the Detroit City Council before being elected to the United States Senate in 1978. Former Senator Levin went on to serve 6 terms in the Senate, and spent 8 years as chair of Senate Armed Services Committee. Early on in his career Rep.

“Tim earned my endorsement not only because he knows how to get things done, but also because I can trust him to fight for our values”, said Former Senator Levin. He went on to say, “Tim is the kind of thoughtful leader we need in Washington. From his work to establish Healthy Michigan, which secured healthcare coverage for over 650,000 Michiganders, to raising the minimum wage and indexing it to inflation, Tim has consistently delivered for Michigan’s hard-working men and women.”

Rep. Greimel said of the endorsement, “I’m honored to receive Former Senator Levin’s endorsement. I hope to serve the people of Michigan with the same honor, distinction, and record of accomplishment as Former Senator Levin. Now more than any other time we need Members of Congress who can bring people together and deliver results for middle class families.”
