CONGRESSMAN BART STUPAK TALKS ABOUT RETIREMENT.

U.S. CONGRESSMAN BART STUPAK (D-Menominee)

U-S Congressman Bart Stupak joined News Director Walt Lindala this morning to follow-up on his announcement on Friday that he would not be running for a 10th term in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Stupak became the center of controversy following his recent vote over the health care legislation that made political history in the United States.  The 58-year-old Stupak said Friday that he was stepping down after 30 years in public service, with 18 of those years in Congress.

In this exclusive interview with Great Lakes Radio News, Stupak re-iterated why he is stepping down now in the wake of all of the political heat generated by the health care vote and explained how, while it was impossible to ignore, was not a controlling factor in his decision.  To listen to the Congressman’s comments, please click “HERE
