Gibbs declares victory, Meijer concedes in Michigan GOP race for Congress

Great Rapids — John Gibbs, the Trump-endorsed challenger to U.S. Representative Peter Meijer, declares victory in nationally monitored results of the race from West Michigan’s 3rd congressional district.

Politically appointed to former President Donald Trump’s housing and urban development agency, Gibbs ran as an ultra-conservative replacement for incumbent Meijer of Grand Rapids Township, who was one of 10 House Republicans to impeach then-President Donald Trump after Jan. 1. United States Capitol riot on 6 2021.

Gibbs declared victory early Wednesday morning during a watch party at his campaign headquarters in Wyoming, a suburb of Grand Rapids.

Meijer called Gibbs around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday and conceded the run.

The Associated Press still hasn’t called the race; Gibbs had around 53% of the vote to Meijer’s 47%, with around 65% reporting from the constituencies.
