Bipartisanship, Wolverine State-Style


Then-Rep. Bart Stupak looks on during a meeting on Capitol Hill on November 11, 2009.(Liz Lynch)

Who says bipartisanship is dead? Not GOP Rep. Fred Upton or former Rep. Bart Stupak. Upton raised almost half a million dollars last quarter, the largest haul in the Michigan delegation. Nestled amid the political action committees and industry bigwigs who donated to Upton earlier this year is a $500 contribution from Stupak, the Democrat who represented Michigan's Upper Peninsula before retiring in 2011.

Stupak is currently a lobbyist for a firm that deals with government and regulatory affairs. He also served on the Energy and Commerce Committee, which Upton chairs, during his time in the House.
