Will Upton Run Again?


Will Congressman Fred Upton seek reelection next year? We asked him, and he told WSJM News it’s too early to decide, but he has been “checking all the boxes.”

“We’ve been pretty busy in the district, covering it like a blanket,” Upton said. “If we had decided that we’re not going to be running, I wouldn’t be getting up at five, six in the morning, covering the counties like we have, and keeping the schedule that we have, that’s for sure. So, everything is in a state of play, and we’ll make a decision in the upcoming couple of months.”

Upton says he won’t make a final decision until closer to the filing deadline, which he says is around mid-2020. Upton was first elected to represent Michigan’s Sixth District in 1986.
