12. There's no chanaging trends in the UP
Been up to the UP lately? Go and take a good look around. It's as conservadem as it gets.

And here's a tidbit you may not know. When McDowell first ran the state House caucus and the MDP wouldn't give him the time of day. There were some strong advocates screaming bloody murder that he had a chance and deserved some help. Nada. He pushed on and pulled off the win. Like the 1st CD his state House district includes counties above and below the bridge, for what that's worth.

You just can't go into this stuff based on emotional thinking, no knowledge of the district in question and no clue as to the background of the players involved.
