HOUGHTON -- U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow hosted a reception and fundraiser for 110th District Michigan Rep. Scott Dianda Aug. 12 at the Shelden Grill in Houghton.

The informal fundraising event kicked off Dianda's campaign for re-election in 2014. Also present to show their support were Michigan House Democratic Leader Tim Greimel, other Michigan Democratic House members and about 30 door-knocking supporters for Dianda.
Greimel, who represents Michigan's 29th House District downstate, has visited the Copper Country several times and is an enthusiastic supporter of Dianda, who, he told local Democrats, is the hardest-working legislator in the House.
