Peter Meijer wins 2020 Republican Primary for Michigan US House District 3

Peter Meijer (

Peter Meijer has won the 2020 Republican primary election for U.S. House Michigan District 3.

Meijer defeated Joe Farrington, Emily Rafi, Tom Norton, and Lynn Afendoulis in Tuesday’s election.

“Tonight, I would like to congratulate Peter Meijer on the big victory in his primary. When Michigan’s 3rd congressional district needed a voice in Washington, Justin Amash turned his back on his constituents. Peter is a conservative veteran who will bring strong, stable, and effective representation to West Michigan – and never turn his back on us,” reads a statement from Michigan GOP Chairman Laura Cox.

Meijer, who describes himself “a son of West Michigan” and a veteran of the war in Iraq, will now go up against Democrat Hillary Scholten in November.

Scholten ran unopposed in the Aug. 4 primary.

The seat was previously held by former Republican Justin Amash.
