Congressional Candidate Gary McDowell to visit Hancock Dec. 11

HANCOCK -- The Houghton County Democratic Party will hold their regular monthly party meeting at a different time and place this month. Instead of the first Wednesday, they will have a short party meeting at 1:30 p.m. this coming Sunday afternoon, Dec. 11, at Studio Pizza and Ice Cream on Quincy Street in Hancock.

The meeting will precede a special social event to welcome U.S. Congressional candidate Gary McDowell to Houghton County. McDowell is scheduled to appear at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, in the Orpheum Theatre (at Studio Pizza).

The rally was held shortly after McDowell announced his decision to run again for Michigan's First Congressional seat -- formerly held by Bart Stupak and now by Rep. Dan Benishek (R-Iron River), who defeated McDowell in 2010. (Photo by Keweenaw Now)

The public is welcome to attend the event and bring friends and family to meet Candidate McDowell and find out why he wants to be the next person to represent Michigan's 1st Congressional District.
