INTERVIEW: Debbie Dingell – “It’s important that people know that I will work hard for them, I will be their fighter”

As an organizer and volunteer in Washtenaw County, I am blessed with the friendship of Dean of the House, Congressman John Dingell and soon-to-be 12th District Congresswoman Debbie Dingell. Through that friendship, I have to come to realize a couple of things about Ms. Dingell and both have to do with a deeply committed love. The first is that “the […]

Honoring Dean of the House John Dingell who will be the longest serving member of Congress on Friday

A champion of the people

This Friday, Congressman John Dingell will break Senator Robert Byrd’s record for the longest serving member of Congress having served 57 years and 177 days. He is already the Dean of the House, the longest continuously serving member of the House of Representatives. Although I am in the Congressional district next Congressman Dingell’s, I have gotten to know him well through my community organizing activities with the Washtenaw County Democratic Party. I’m proud to call him and his wife Debbie friends.

In his 57 years in Congress, Congressman Dingell has cast tens of thousands of votes and has been associated with some of the most historical legislation in our country’s history. Every session, he has carried on the tradition first set by his father of introducing legislation to create a single-payer, universal health care system in the United States of America.

Click through for a list of some of the other legislation that bear his mark and much, much more.

BREAKING: Debbie Dingell will NOT run for Senate

BREAKING: Debbie Dingell will NOT run for Senate

A class act by a classy Democrat

Debbie Dingell, whose name has been mentioned in nearly every conversation about who will replace Carl Levin when he leaves his Senate seat in 2014, has announced that she is NOT running. When I spoke with her last week, she made it clear to me then that she had not made a decision at that point. She and her husband Congressman John Dingell are VERY close as those of us in Washtenaw County have the privilege of observing on a regular basis, and a Senate run would have separated them, a prospect that clearly gave Dingell pause.

Today, she has announced that a decision has been made. Her statement is after the jump.

While pundits are busy anointing Gary Peters for Senate, Debbie Dingell puts up strong poll numbers

Let’s take a breath here for a minute, shall we? You can’t read an article or blog post about the race to fill departing Senator Carl Levin’s seat without hearing how Gary Peters is the leading contender, almost as if the seat is his if he wants it. While Peters is, without question, a great candidate and certainly someone to […]

Romney poll numbers get the Ryan Splat, Dems fired up

Romney poll numbers get the Ryan Splat, Dems fired up

So much for charging up the base…

Although the Romney campaign clearly hoped the selection of Super and True Conservative Paul Ryan as his running mate would fire up his base and, more importantly, fire up his polling numbers, the truth is, it hasn’t.

Reuters reports that only 26 percent of people they polled view Romney more favorably after his choice of Ryan for Vice President. Gallup polling shows that his support number went from 46% to 47% among registered voters after the VP announcement.

Splat.

So much for that.

Much more after the jump.
