Stevens said she believes the former New York City mayor would fight for working families and achieve an infrastructure deal if he’s elected president.

“I know Mike Bloomberg will help grow Michigan’s manufacturing economy, because I worked with him in the past to create advanced manufacturing jobs,” said Stevens.

“I’m endorsing Mike Bloomberg for president because he has the experience to unite the country and defeat Donald Trump this fall, and I am eager to work with him to tackle our toughest problems and strengthen the middle class, lower healthcare costs, and fight climate change,” she continued.

Bloomberg made a late entry into the 2020 primary race, officially launching his campaign in November. He’s sought to make up ground by not contesting the first four nominating states and instead blitzing Super Tuesday on March 3, when more than a dozen states hold primary contests. He has propped up his bid with an ad campaign backed by hundreds of millions of dollars.

He’s also been buoyed by a string of endorsements from front-line members of the House who face tough reelection bids, such as Stevens.

The Michigan congresswoman’s November race is rated as “lean Democratic” by The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election handicapper.
