Re: Politics & Current Events

the guy is horsefeathering 88 years old and his seat has been Democratic for almost 80 years. The Republicans aren't going to be able to hold Michigan's 13th no matter how hard they try. this is a fun opportunity to see how ludicrously shapen that district is https://wdet.org/media/daguerre/2016/07...
