Tag: 1st Congressional District
Michiganders, much like the rest of the nation, have found themselves organizing and protesting and committing themselves to change. Bart Stupak was a "marked man" for his capitulation with the Obama administration and his willingness to go against the wishes of his constituents, Michigan's 1st Congressional District.
A seat held for multiple terms by a Democrat, saw a number of candidates make a bid in the Republican primary. Those candidates sensing the public has finally begun to understand a Democrat shift leftward towards socialism, decided the time was at hand to make a run for that office. The primary produced a conservative Republican candidate, and a Democrat candidate who is likely to be fairly similar to Stupak. (Without the baggage of lying to his constituents)
It seemed as though the race would be clear. Whomever delivers a solid message that speaks to the values of CD1 voters would win the seat. And given the sentiment towards the administration which has not yet gotten it right, a Republican victory by Dan Benishek seemed to be the most likely outcome. A 4-5 point victory perhaps, and maybe even tighter if the big labor element and the Michigan Democrat party spends a few dollars propping up its candidate.
Recent polling bears out a pretty solid lead by Benishek, with a 13 point lead over McDowell in a 2 way race, and a 14 point lead over McDowell in a four way race that includes a disqualified fake tea candidate, and a candidate pulling 6% who would seem a likely spoiler.

There are 7 sections to this video.
Joel Sheltrown has decided he will not seek the first congressional seat. The current report from the Ivory Tower offers his given explanation:
He didn't mention the real reason.
He didn't mention He would be fighting a machine that already has the financing available, and the right connections. Political insiders suggest it was the realization that Gary McDowell, current State Rep from Rudyard is Stupak's hand picked successor, and will likely receive support from team Stupak, and the Michigan Democrat Party. With rumors of more than $2 million in that war chest, it would be a formidable task to go against it.
But for the moment.. let that sink in.. "Hand picked successor.."
