Primary For Stupak - help needed
I have family in Bart Stupak's district who are active in local Democratic politics.

I have it on good authority that if a candidate is willing to step into the ring that several local county leaders will work to secure the necessary signatures by the deadline.

One county in particular has told the Stupak campaign not to ask him for help this year - the specifics will be available soon - I believe they are going to issue a press release and I don't want to step on their message.

So, as of now, there isn't a primary challenger, but the apparatus to support on is being built as we speak. They just need someone to step up.

3. I'm sure if someone were to step up to the plate, they would have no problem raising the money.nt

4. Probably not, but Bart has a pretty big advantage
However, i think it's worth holding his feet to the fire and he's pissed on his local power base one to many times, from what i hear.

I believe they are working very hard at setting up a challange - if they do, I'll certainly open my wallet.
