Democrat Jerry M. Campbell, 53, serves as supervisor of Roscommon Countys Richfield Township. Hes undaunted by the prospect of facing Camp, a 10-term congressman, in the November general election. I think we need a change in the 4th District, Campbell said. My opponent seems to vote straight party line all the time.

He opposes past Republican drives to privatize Social Security, which Camp has advocated. Anybodys whos watched the 401(k) system knows thats a bad idea, Campbell said.

Campbell opposes trade pacts such as the North American Free Trade Agreement. The one-time autoworker notes he worked at a GM factory in Flint to earn money to pay for his education at Michigan State University. The former A.C. Spark Plug factory was demolished and much of the production sent out of the country.

Campbell supports extending unemployment benefits and tighter regulations on financial institutions in the aftermath of the Wall Street taxpayer-funded bailout. Camp voted for the first bailout to prop up the nations economy and financial system from collapse.
