Another Democrat in Political Trouble … House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) in for a Tough Go
If it’s an incumbent Democrat … it must be a politician in reelection trouble.
Another Democrat in a leadership role appears to be in some trouble in his reelection bid for the House of Representatives. House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich) appears that he might be facing a tough reelection race in 2010.
40 percent of Conyers’s constituents said he deserved reelection, according to a poll conducted earlier this month by the Lansing, Mich.-based Deno Noor Polling, in conjunction with the Rossman Group and Perricone Group.
44 percent of Detroiters represented by Conyers said they would prefer to elect someone else. 15 percent were unsure or didn’t know.
The 80 year old Conyers has served in Congress since 1965. 80!!! Since 1965!!! There is no way the Founding Fathers ever intended the members of Congress to be a lifetime appointment. Also as Don Surber reminds us, it does not help one’s reelection bid when your wife is a crook.
This country needs term limits and they need them now!
