Neither Slotkin’s campaign nor People First immediately responded to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

“We are looking for creators who value stable, collaborative, and bipartisan leadership for Michigan,” the website states.

This call for bipartisanship, however, is undermined by the group’s history of campaigning for Democratic presidential candidates, as well as promoting embattled political organizations.

The group also bragged about working with kids’ show “Sesame Street” to engage “parents on impactful ways to talk to their kids about racial equity” and launching Planned Parenthood “on TikTok to advocate for sexual health of a new generation”.

However, the progressive organization’s Democratic roots run deeper – the group’s Facebook page is run by the United We Win Super PAC, a single-candidate super PAC supporting Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

That means the political money being offered to help boost Slotkin’s re-election chances probably doesn’t even come from Michigan.

The endorsement bids come as Slotkin faces a tough race in a year that is expected to favor Republicans.

According to Michigan voter registration data, Slotkin updated his voting address in May of this year to reflect the address of a home in Lansing currently owned by Jerry Hollister, an executive at Niowave Inc., a Lansing-based pharmaceutical manufacturing company that has received millions in federal funding.
