      Congressman Dan Benishek expresses thoughts on presidential debate

      Congressman Dan Benishek is visiting local businesses in the Copper Country, and his first stop was a tour of Superior Block in Houghton.

      We were able to sit down with Congressman Benishek and asked for his thoughts on Wednesday's presidential debate.

      "Well, I think that the president doesn't really have much to run on as far as his record is concerned," said Benishek. "Unemployment is still in double digits here in Northern Michigan. It has been that way for over 40 months. I think Mr. Romney's got some great ideas for the country."

      The congressman will have mobile office hours on Wednesday at the Keweenaw County Courthouse from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
