This Rothenberg Report refers to Nancy Skinner as the under-funded challenger and Gary Peters as a better funded and experienced candidate.

Michigan 9: Missed or Growing Opportunity?
By Nathan L. Gonzales

Republican Cong. Joe Knollenbergs narrow victory in 2006 may have been a blessing and a curse for Democrats.

His under-whelming margin over an under-funded challenger sparked interest in the 9th District seat that was previously left off competitive race lists, based on the congressmans fourteen years in office. Coupled with victories at the top of the ticket, Democrats are excited about a new opportunity in the suburban district with a better funded and more experienced candidate.

But last years battle also lit a fire under the incumbent, and he wont be taken by surprise. Knollenberg has ramped up his activity in the district, fundraising, and political operation earlier than ever before. Hell try to follow the 2006 blueprint of some of his House colleagues who took their races seriously from the beginning and survived the partisan wave
