About Steve Carra

Steve Carra was born and raised in Southwest Michigan, graduated from Portage Northern High School in 2007, and graduated from Western Michigan University in 2011 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. He was a research assistant at Acton Institute, a Christian-based free market think tank focused on connecting good intentions with sound economics. He then went on to work for Michigan’s most conservative state representative at the time, Steve Johnson, for three years.

In 2011, an idealistic Steve Carra met with Fred Upton and a member of his staff to see what Steve could do to make a difference in the world. After Fred left the meeting, the staff member told Steve he should run for congress. Steve was confused by the advice he was given… the advice, to replace Fred, was coming from Fred’s own staff! At the time, Steve was not even old enough to run. Ever since, Steve has been involved in the political arena. First as a grassroots activist, then a precinct delegate, as a 6th District executive committee member, then as a Kalamazoo County executive committee member, as the Secretary of the Kalamazoo County Republican party, then as staff for a state representative, as the current State Representative for District 59, and now as a candidate for Congress. It’s been hard work, but seeing a path to advance the America First agenda has been a true reward in and of itself.

Before working in Lansing, Steve had thought of political as smoky, backroom meetings full of evil legislators and lobbyists… believing the elected officials and pay-to-play lobbyists knew what they were doing was wrong, and didn’t care about people. After seeing the system from the inside, but not succumbing to it, he realized the system itself is corrupt and that it corrupts well-intentioned people. This is what President Trump realized about the deep state, a professional class on unaccountable people are running the show. When a legislator wants to get a promotion in Lansing, they oftentimes vote yes on bills they don’t believe in to go along to get along and not rock the boat… selling out their voters and citizens in the process. America has had enough of the status quo and Representative Carra is ready to restore integrity and a system that represents the interests of the people in Washington.

As a member of Michigan House, Steve introduced:

  • Constitutional Carry: because a permission slip from bureaucrats shouldn’t be required to defend yourself and your family
  • A Ban on Vaccine Passports: because the United States will never impose a class system
  • A Forensic Audit of the 2020 Election in Michigan: because no one should object to counting every legal vote

In Congress, Steve is ready to continue the fight by:

  • Demanding authentic election integrity at all levels of government
  • Calling for the immediate firing of Anthony Fauci for his lies to the American people
  • Standing for the unborn and the sanctity of life
  • Advancing a 2nd Amendment agenda to make our forefathers proud
  • Banning vaccine passports and lockdowns that destroy our small businesses
  • Enacting term limits for every politician to ensure We The People maintain control of our government
Steve currently resides in Three Rivers and is serving in his capacity as the state representative for District 59, encompassing all of St. Joseph County and most of Cass County.
  • I’m a Pro Trump Conservative Fighter.
  • I’ve taken on the Lansing swamp.

I am the most conservative member of the Michigan house and I intend to be the same in Washington.
