Detroit Democrat Shri Thanedar, the former gubernatorial candidate who was elected to the state House last year, says he's running for Congress in 2022 for the 13th District seat currently held by Rashida Tlaib.

"Working for the people of Michigan in the State House is an honor and privilege," Thanedar said in a news release, according to the Detroit Free Press. "This work has strengthened my desire for public service and I am ready for higher office.”

Thanedar plans to form an exploratory committee. The redistricting process under way will change the landscape of congressional districts.
