The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (LRC-PAC) has announced its primary election endorsements for the Michigan House of Representatives and Ingham County Commission seats. The endorsed candidates are: 


State Senate Primary Election Endorsements

  • Curtis Hertel, Jr – 23rd Senate Seat (Democrat) 

State House Primary Election Endorsements

  • Sarah Anthony – 68th House Seat (Democrat)
  • Julie Brixie – 69th House Seat (Democrat)

Ingham County Commission Primary Election Endorsements

  • Vince Dragonetti – 7th District (Democrat)
  • Dennis Louney – 10th District (Democrat)
  • Milton Scales – 11th District (Democrat)
  • Randy Schafer – 13th District (Republican)

“We were very pleased at the quality of candidates that we have been able to endorse so far this year,” said Steve Japinga, director of government relations for the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. “The candidates we are backing for the state legislature and Ingham County Commission share our vision for moving the region forward and working collaboratively with the business community.”


The LRC-PAC's endorsement process includes a review of a candidate's past performance, a written questionnaire and in some cases an in-person interview. Only after this process is completed and a vote of the LRC-PAC Board is taken can a candidate be endorsed and be considered for financial support. LRC-PAC will be making additional general election endorsements after the primary.
