ESCANABA — Matt Morgan says his campaign hasn’t garnered much national attention but he does have the endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden.
Morgan says he appreciates Biden’s working class connections. One person he is not seeking the endorsement of is Nancy Pelosi, a person Congressman Jack Bergman has connected Morgan with in his ads. But Morgan says he would seek new leadership if the Democrats take the House.
“I will not vote for her for Speaker of the House,” Morgan said. “I think we need a new generation of leaders. The bottom line is I don’t think she is the best person to lead the caucus.”
Going into his last week of the campaign, Morgan says he will continue to go door-to-door and focus on issues interested to voters. Those issues include healthcare and infrastructure.
“I will tell you healthcare is always an important one, you know, protecting our rural hospitals. Drug prices are always a big thing. Those are big issues. And then the one that stretches out across party lines is infrastructure. If I go to Washington in January I will work very hard to push the caucus to send send an infrastructure bill to the President’s desk,” said Morgan.
Morgan said he views running for office as an opportunity to serve. He said he will be a hands-on Congressman if elected Nov. 6.
