Michigan Republican Party Youth Vice Chair Michael Banerian has filed to run for State House in the 40th District.
According to documents filed with Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, Banerian is running to replace State Rep. Mike McCready, who is term limited.
Banerian has yet to make an official announcement, which is expected to come as early as next week.
Banerian, who made headlines last year over death threats he received as a member of the electoral college supporting Donald Trump, has been involved in politics since high school, when he worked to defeat a local tax hike. He is an Oakland University graduate.
According to his MIGOP bio:
Michael also serve(d) as the Vice President of the College Republicans of Oakland University."
Banerian isn't the only MIGOP leader seeking a State House seat in Oakland County.
Coalitions Vice Chair Kevin Tatulyan announced his campaign to replace term limited State Rep. Klint Kesto in the 44th District in front of a packed house last week.
