Shannon, Nate (D)State Representative District 25
Rep. Shannon was first elected to the House on Nov. 6, 2018 after he defeated Republican Jazmine EARLY by securing 53.96 percent of the vote.
In the August primary, Shannon was unopposed.
In 2020, Shannon didn't face a primary but did receive a strong challenge from Republican Paul SMITH. A with less than a month before the general election, MIRS cited the 25th Shannon-Smith race as the 8th most likely flip seat. Shannon ultimately defeated Smith 52.8% to 47%.
Comments made by Smith about charges against men who conspired to kidnap Gov. Gretchen WHITMER as "totally bogus" helped de-rail his bid. (See "GOP's HD-25 Candidate Calls Arrest Of Conspirators 'Totally Bogus Sham,'" 10/09/2020)
Shannon fell short of winning a seat on the Sterling Heights City Council in the 2013 general election, but was appointed to the council in 2015 to fill the vacancy left after Michael Taylor was tapped as the mayor. He won re-election to the city council seat in 2015 and 2017.
He is an economics, government and history teacher in L'Anse Creuse Public Schools in Clinton Township.

He is married with three children.
