Elissa Slotkin concludes victory tour in Lansing

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)-- Congresswoman-elect Elissa Slotkin made the last of three stops in the 8th District here in Lansing as part of a day-long victory tour. 

She met with supporters late this afternoon at Strange Matter Coffee.

Along with thanking her supporters, she was ready to talk about the issues she plans to tackle head on when she gets to Washington, D.C.

In addition to big issues like health care and infrastructure, Slotkin said that her first priority in Washington will be to tackle campaign finance reform. She told 6 News that this kind of reform is important to her because of what it symbolizes: a reminder of who the elected officials are working for.

"If you take $100,000 from the pharmaceutical industry," Slotkin said, "and then you're a legislator in charge of curbing the price of prescription drugs, it calls into question who you're voting for and who you're working for."

Slotkin will head to Washington next week for her first orientation in Congress, and in the meantime she's working on ways to stay connected to her constituents in mid-Michigan.
