Candidate Details

Debbie Dingell

House - Incumbent

Since 2014, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell has represented Michigan’s 12th Congressional District. Her husband, JStreetPAC endorsee Congressman John Dingell, had previously represented the Michigan 12th since 1955.  Before running for Congress, Rep. Dingell worked for the General Motors Corporation for over 30 years, serving as president of the GM Foundation and as a senior executive handing public affairs. She has also previously served as chairwoman of the Manufacturing Initiative at the American Automotive Policy Council and sat on the Wayne State Board of Governors for seven years.

Congresswoman Dingell represents the largest Arab American district in the United States, and believes that support for the two-state solution must remain a top priority for the current administration. She also supported the Iran nuclear deal, commending Secretary Kerry for his diplomatic efforts in hammering out the JCPOA. Rep. Dingell’s diplomatic advocacy continued into the most recent Congressional session, in which she signed on to the vast majority of J Street’s legislative priorities. Congresswoman Dingell cosponsored House Resolution 326, which reaffirmed Congress’s commitment to the two-state solution and opposed settlement expansion and annexation.
