Dr. Rob Davidson, a Democrat who lost his 2018 challenge to U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Zeeland), has a new gig.
He’s the new volunteer executive director of the nonprofit Committee to Protect Medicare & the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Spring Lake emergency room doctor will continue to practice medicine, the organization said on its website.
“At the center of my campaign was the fight to secure affordable health care for all,” he said in a video. “And today, I’m incredibly proud to announce that I will continue that fight in my new role as the executive director of the Committee to Protect Medicare & the Affordable Care Act.”
Davidson ran in the 2nd District, a GOP stronghold. Huizenga defeated him 55 percent to 43 percent. The Democrat raised $1 million.
