Mallory McMorrow has become the breakout star of the Democratic Party since her passionate speech pushing back against disgusting “groomer” allegations made by a Republican colleague. A video of the speech has had over 15 million views, and she received a call from President Biden thanking her. She has testified before Congress to fight for abortion rights, as well as in numerous television appearances, and has become a national voice for Democrats pushing back against the GOP’s hateful attacks. She is helping to lead the effort to put abortion rights on the ballot in Michigan.
Senator McMorrow became the youngest woman ever elected to the Michigan Senate after defeating a Republican incumbent in her first-ever run for office in 2018. She currently represents nearly 280,000 residents in Oakland County, Michigan. She has been a vocal advocate for gun violence prevention, public education, and for standing up against hateful rhetoric that aims to scapegoat marginalized people. In 2021, she became “Senator Mom” to her daughter, Noa.
