Hon. Rep. Stephen Adamini endorses Bob Lorinser for Congress

Former Michigan House Representative, Hon. Stephen Adamini, has joined a growing list of local leaders supporting Bob Lorinser's 2024 run for US Congress.

MARQUETTE, Mich. — Bob Lorinser, the Democratic candidate for the US Congress, has received a significant endorsement from Hon. Rep. Stephen Adamini.

In a statement, Adamini said, "Like countless others in my district, I'm alive today because of Doc. He's among one of the most honorable men I know. I support Bob Lorinser because of his down-to-earth, no-BS outlook to policy and his ability to serve hardworking families. He is better suited for the job than any other candidate, has the only opportunity to win, and will represent my constituents with integrity."

Adamini said Lorinser's diplomatic service overseas was also a significant motivator in his decision to endorse in the primary.

Stephen Adamini was a Democratic representative in Michigan's 109th District from 2001 to 2006. In 2007, Gov. Jennifer Granholm appointed him to the Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees. He currently serves as a member of the Marquette County Commission.

Bob Lorinser said he is deeply grateful for the endorsements he has received, recognizing the trust and confidence they represent. He extends his thanks to Adamini for his support and for his continued service.

Lorinser expressed gratitude for the broad and diverse coalition he has gathered through endorsements. His candidacy has attracted the support of various community leaders from across the district, including activists, non-profit founders, educators, trustees, commissioners, candidates, mayors, law enforcement, and veterans.

The campaign says Lorinser's continuing momentum will further solidify his position as the best candidate on the ballot in August and November.
