Stupak gets a primary challenger
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/10/connie-saltons...

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) will face a primary challenge later this year from former Charlevoix County Commissioner Connie Saltonstall.

On Monday, Saltonstall, a former teacher who lost a state representative race in 2008, announced her intentions to challenge Stupak, who has represented Michigan's First Congressional District since 1993.

Saltonstall has spoken out against Stupak for his anti-abortion views, which have repeatedly obstructed progress on health care reform.

He "has a right to his personal, religious views, but to deprive his constituents of needed health care reform because of those views is reprehensible," Saltonstall said in a statement.

She looks like she's worthy of support! We need more primary challengers to crappy incumbents to come out of the woodworks.

3. Connie's website
hopefully it will be better fleshed out, complete with opinion papers, by the end of the week.
