    ST. JOSEPH, Mich. – Congressman Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement following his decisive victory in the Republican primary election for Michigan’s 6th Congressional District.

    “I am honored again to be the Republican nominee for the Sixth Congressional District. I am not going to let you down. We’re going to continue to work on a bipartisan basis on issues we all care about; Jobs and the economy, faster cures, roads and infrastructure, and better opportunities for all. I will continue to rise above the dysfunction in Washington in order to get things done for Southwest Michigan.

    “I am incredibly proud of our team and could not have done this without a dedicated group of friends, family, and volunteers who showed their passion and enthusiasm every single day across the sixth district.

    “I am excited with the real prospects of picking up perhaps a dozen seats in the House and gaining control of the Senate. Our challenge then is to govern and turn this country around – as we should. I am ready for that challenge.”
