Roger Huack is the Republican candidate for the Michigan State Senate representing the 34th District. Hauck has been serving on the Michigan State Senate since 2017, and said he is feeling hopeful his past supporters will vote for him again as well as young first time voters. 

Although Hauck has experience with campaigning, he said it was not any easier and it has been a long couple of months.

Hauck said he struggled not being able to meet as many people as he would have liked, with the 11 different counties being so stretched out, but is thankful for the experience his staff and himself have gained since he first campaigned for his position in the state senate. 

Hauck is from Beal City and attended Central Michigan University. 

"I came from a small farming town and first worked in a factory, a path most politicians do not take," Hauck said. Hauck later ran to be a trustee for Union Township, and since winning he became more involved with politics. 

Hauck said, if re-elected, he would work on legislation related to insurance for local farmers, career technology education for high school students and mental health.

Hauck’s advice to first time voters is to get informed about what will be on the ballot and listen to both sides before making a decision. 

“Get out and vote," Hauck said. "It's your duty.”
