Democrat Joins Race Against Thaddeus McCotter

Canton Trustee Syed Taj (D-Mich.) announced hes taking on Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R) next year.

A couple of Republicans most notably state Sen. Mike Kowall are already challenging McCotter in 2012. But Taj is the first Democrat to announce an official campaign.

Republicans redrew McCotters district earlier this year to shore up its GOP voters. Democrats will have a tougher time challenging him under the new lines.

But McCotter is still catching flak from both Democrats and Republicans for his short-lived, quixotic bid for the White House earlier this year.
