Dearborn Republican Hosts Opening of Congressional Campaign Office
Karen Jacobsen will face Cynthia Kallgren of Trenton in the Republican primary for the 12th Congressional District on Aug. 7.
Community members from the newly drawn 12th Congressional District convened at the grand opening of Republican candidate Karen Jacobsen's Dearborn office on Tuesday.
Jacobsen did not give a formal speech, but spent the evening speaking individually with visitors about who they were, what they did, and what issues are important to them. Her trademark "Mitten cutout" was displayed prominently, showing the Jacobsen family's favorite places in the state of Michigan.
Jacobsen is running to oust longtime Dearborn Democrat John Dingell, who has represented the area for more than 50 years.
First, however, she will face off against Cynthia Kallgren of Trenton in the Republican primary for the 12th District on Aug. 7.
