Much has been made of the fact that there are no contestable US House races in Michigan, and at first glance there aren't. Some have tried to reform the redistricting process, which I think most people (except the congressmen/women) support but is doomed, I think, to fail. There are, however, a few seats that aren't as untouchable as many might think. They are the 8th, 9th and 11th districts, held by Mike Rogers, Joe Knollenberg and Thaddy McCotter, respectively. In the coming days, I will be profiling each of their districts as well as the men's elective history. Maybe one of you out there might decide get involved and make for an interesting election cycle.
