Northern Michigan Senator To Tea Party Critic: Screw You

State Senator Howard Walker of Traverse City is getting some attention on social media after a video surfaced of him telling off a Tea Party radio host at a Republican luncheon this week. Brian Sommerfield told Walker the only reason the Medicaid expansion bill passed was because of "weak Republicans" who joined Democrats.


After that initial blast, some in the audience asked what Senator Walker had said to Sommerfield, so he repeated it...


Walker is not running for re-election and had been threatened with a Tea Party challenge for his support of Governor Snyder's Medicaid expansion. The comment was made at an event in Emmet County.
