    ...to challenge Knollenberg.  Her margin was more than 1300 votes for a 9.5% margin.  As one of her volunteers, it was sweet.  It made for a fun victory party.

      Dingell, Walberg cruise to easy primary victories

      Tuesday night, an incumbent and the wife of a retiring incumbent cruised to victory in their respective party's primaries.

      Debbie Dingell defeated Raymond Mullins for the Democratic nomination to succeed her husband John in the Twelfth Congressional District, which includes Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and surrounding areas of eastern Washtenaw County as well as western and southern Wayne County.

      Tim Walberg fended off challenger Douglas North for the Republican nomination in the Seventh Congressional District, which encompasses western and northern Washtenaw County along with a wide swath of southern Michigan extending from Monroe County to Branch County, as well as the counties of Jackson and Eaton.

      I thought these would be blowouts, and they were.

      It makes all that volunteer work so worth while - I'm so pleased for you and Peltonen's whole campaign. (◕‿◕)

      Please note that lamps in the Magic Lamp Emporium are on a genie time-share program so there may be a slight delay in wish fulfillment. (◕‿◕)
