    Former U.S. Congressman Howard Wolpe dies

    Wolpe was an arch-liberal who represented the then-3rd district, which consisted of Kalamazoo, Calhoun, and Eaton Counties and part of Lansing.  He was elected in 1978, defeating Republican Garry Brown. In 1992, his district was dismantled after Michigan lost two seats in the House.  He was the democrat nominee for governor in 1994, when he was crushed by John Engler.

    Wolpe was previously on the Kalamazoo city commission and in the Michigan House of Representatives.

    Wolpe was last in the news accusing Congressman Fred Upton of becoming a "right-wing extremist". See Upton's ACU rating's here.

    Wolpe's letter contained the following revelation.

    Fred, we've known each other for many years. Despite my being a Democrat and you being a Republican you will recall that I helped in getting you elected in the first place by making members of my own campaign organization available to you in your fight against Mark Siljander. I have always known you to be honest, moderate, reasonable, and conscientious, and I have always valued our friendship.
