GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District has long leaned Republican, but new congressional maps have changed the district — which is home to Grand Rapids — in a big way, and one expert says the district is now a “toss up.”
“It’s less conservative,” said Calvin College Political Science Professor Doug Koopman, who formerly served as a congressional staffer for for Pete Hoekstra, Fred Upton and Paul Henry. “It’s more of a Democratic district. If you look at the vote histories and partisanship, it’s really 50-50.”
