“Rumors are being whispered around Washington, D.C.” that Rep. Fred Upton (R-06) “is mulling over a Senate challenge to” Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D).

“Upton spokesperson Tom Wilbur says not to dig in too deep to those rumblings, at least right now.”

"Fred appreciates the encouragement he's gotten from folks who believe his know-how and vision would serve our state well," Wilbur said. "But right now his focus is on representing everyone here in Southwest Michigan and advancing an agenda that ensures affordable energy for Michigan families as chairman of the energy subcommittee."
