It appears we will see a re-match in Michigan’s 7th CD next year. Former state Representative Gretchen Driskell (D), despite losing to Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Tipton/Jackson) by 15 percentage points, will return for another campaign. Mr. Walberg was first elected in 2006 after defeating then-Rep. Joe Schwarz (R) in the Republican primary. He lost the seat two years later, but regained it in 2010 and has held ever since. The 7th was re-drawn in 2011 to give the GOP Congressman more favorable territory.
