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

people first writes on hers website that election season “is fast approaching, and with so much at stake in Michigan, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction.”

“We are looking for creators who value stable, collaborative, and non-partisan leadership for Michigan,” the website reads.

However, this call for bipartisanship is undermined by the group’s history of campaigning for Democratic presidential candidates and promoting embattled political organizations.

people first boasts on their website They “activated an army of BIPOC influencers to win a presidential election” for President Biden, as well as their work with progressive political organizations Fair Fight and Black Lives Matter.

People First has supported several progressive causes, including embattled organizations Black Lives Matter and Fair Fight.  The group's Facebook page is operated by United We Win, a super PAC that includes Senator Cory Booker, DN.J.

The group also boasted it is collaborating with the children’s show Sesame Street to “engage parents in powerful ways to talk to their children about racial justice” and to launch Planned Parenthood “on TikTok to advocate for the sexual health of a new generation.” “.

But the progressive organization’s democratic roots run deeper – the group’s Facebook page is managed by United We Win Super PAC, a single candidate Super PAC Support for Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

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

The offers of support come as Slotkin faces a tough race in a year likely to favor Republicans.

People First also partnered with the children's show Sesame Street to get involved "Parents on effective ways to talk to their children about racial justice."

“From my perspective, if the district moves and it’s a Lansing-based district, and that’s the district where I run most naturally, then I’ll move and live in the Lansing area and run in the Lansing district,” Slotkin said the Ingham County Democrats at their party organization’s monthly meeting in September 2021.

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