Debbie Dingell on Corporations

 

 


Don't bash the domestic auto industry

Q: What do you see as the issues that will drive you the most as you move forward?

A: Some people say I'm too passionate about too many things. [laughs] But, first, I care about manufacturing and auto production because they are the backbone of our state. And I know we don't need to send one more person to Washington that's going to bash the domestic auto industry. That's why there is a clear choice in Michigan's Senate race. So that's obviously going to be one of my main issues.

One-time lobbyist for the automotive industry

A onetime lobbyist for the automotive industry, she is a consultant for the American Automobile Policy Council and has long been a major figure in Washington, D.C., charitable endeavors.

Rep. John Dingell served nearly 60 years in Congress. The Michigan congressman, whose father held the same seat for 22 years, is the country's longest-serving lawmaker. As such, Debbie Dingell's candidacy has been perceived as an attempt to continue the "Dingell dynasty." EMILY's List, the organization committed to electing pro-choice female Democrats, touted Dingell as "a strong Democratic leader." EMILY's List recruits and financially supports women candidates, and is likely banking on Debbie Dingell continuing her husband's voting record on abortion rights. NARAL Pro-Choice America recently awarded him a 100 score for 2013 congressional votes related to the issue. EMILY's List backed Dingell over another pro-choice female Democrat running for the same seat.
