Former Republican Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop is reportedly strongly considering a comeback campaign. Bishop previously lost his House seat to a Democrat challenger in 2018.

The Hill reports:

A source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Hill that Bishop, who served in the House for two terms before losing his seat to Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), is “seriously considering” another House campaign. The source advised that Bishop is likely to wait to see how Michigan’s congressional lines are ultimately drawn before making a final decision.

When reached by The Hill, Bishop confirmed that he is “very interested” in another campaign but insisted he would await the results of the map drawing process by Michigan’s redistricting commission.

“I feel very optimistic about the direction the commission is going,” he said. “Realistically, I have to wait for them to conclude, and that’s just a function of time.”

Should Bishop run, he would likely try to launch his comeback in a district based in Oakland and Macomb counties outside of Detroit. The district he represented included much of Oakland County, and he has long had ties to the area, including representing it in the state Senate.

What do you think? Should Bishop officially announce his campaign for next year’s midterms and help the party win back the House?
