The Michigan lawmaker—and possible governor candidate—was talking about the Flint water crisis and U.S. hostages in Iran before much of the world noticed.

Rep. Dan Kildee of Michigan waits for Amir Hekmati to arrive on a flight at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan on Jan. 21. Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine recently released from an Iranian prison in a prisoner-swap deal, was returning to his home state.
