Announces bid for congressional seat

10 Aug, 2015

Gilbert announces that she is running for Congress. She is running as a Democrat, hoping to unseat Bishop in Michigan’s 8th district.

I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy. I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.
