After his prominent role in the national healthcare reform debate, Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak is being challenged for office on both sides of the isle.
From the left, Connie Saltonstall says the debate should never have been "sidetracked into an abortion debate." She announced plans to run earlier this month.
And now a 25-year-old Drain Commissioner from Cheboygan County, Dennis Lennox, says he's considering a run against Stupak on the Republican ticket.
Dennis Lennox appeared poised to run for a seat in Lansing, but he now says he'll decide within the next several days whether he'll run for that seat, or for Stupak's long-held spot in D-C.
"If he was truly in touch with Upper and Northern Michigan, he wouldn't have supported the government taking over healthcare," Lennox says of Stupak.
Stupak is a pro-life Democrat. He sided with his party in support of health reform, but only after an Executive Order reaffirming that no taxpayer dollars would be spent on abortion.
