Hey, TaterTot! Levin is a US Representative, which, meets in Washington, D.C., not Lansing.

It is sad to me that people still go out and vote a straight ticket because of what a political party supposedly stands for instead of researching each candidate and determining who they are and what they stand for as individuals. Is it not possible for you to be a Democrat or Republican and possibly agree with a candidate of a different political affiliation more than the one that represents your party? It's not right to group all Dems or all Reps together, it's as ignorant as stereotyping race, gender, or religion based on a small group.
