The 1988 Congressional elections saw all seats in the house, and the "Class 1" seats in the Senate up for grabs. House Speaker Bruce Casey did not run for reelection, and the Liberal Democrats replaced him with former presidential contender Jeffrey S. Crochet of Mackinac.

Riding President Stowe's proverbial coattails, the Liberal Democrats managed to slightly increase their majority in the House, and to capture a Senate seat in Menominee recently held by Conservative Robert Haase, until his resignation earlier in the year.

Steven Bolden, the only member of another party - the Socialists - up for election this time around narrowly won reelection over the Conservative candidate in his Chippewa riding.

The largely peaceful situation that had existed since the establishment of the republic remained in force, though the seeds of later issues, namely the Mackinaw problem, came into being at this time.
