As a part of Michigan Radio's Election 2016 coverage, we sent a questionnaire to the two major party candidates from each congressional district. We sent the questionnaire at the beginning of this month. So far, we've heard back from 19 of the 28 candidates.
We asked each candidate these four questions:
- What is the most important issue facing your district?
- How do you plan to address it?
- What book or movie have you seen/read recently that you recommend? Why?
- What will you do if you don't win the election?
Did your candidate respond to the questionnaire? If so, how? Follow the links below.
