Following a long career in local politics, Dan Kildee was first elected to Congress in 2012. After statewide re-districting, Kildee's newly drawn district – which includes parts of Flint, Saginaw and Bay City – became a top GOP target in 2022. Kildee was re-elected for a sixth term by a double-digit margin.
Before serving in Congress, Rep. Kildee was the co-founder and president of the Center for Community Progress, a non-profit organization leading the charge on urban revitalization efforts nationwide. He also founded Michigan’s first land bank, the Genesee County Land Bank.
Rep. Kildee serves in the Democratic leadership as co-chair of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, having previously served as Chief Deputy Whip of the committee.
Rep. Kildee has been a JStreetPAC endorsee since 2014 and is a champion of J Street’s issues on the Hill. He has traveled to Israel on a J Street Congressional Delegation, and supported nearly all of J Street’s recent legislative agenda priorities, including H.R. 5344, the Two-State Solution Act.
