A giant thank-you to all my supporters in MI-5.
TV Host Bart Hawley interviews Bart Goldberg, a candidate for US House in Michigan's 5th District.
“(Walberg)’s been a partisan. And I’m going to work with everyone. I think that’s going to be the key difference,” Goldberg said.
The candidate listed fighting polarization, promoting economic health and protecting abortion rights as his chief concerns. Should he be elected, Goldberg would aim to have a seat on the Agriculture Committee, where he would simplify the visa process for temporary farm workers and promote small farmers’ interests on the 2023 Farm Bill. He also described himself as a strong union supporter.
Bob Montgomery sat down with Michigan 5th district Congressional candidate Bart Goldberg (D).
Bart Goldberg — the Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 5th congressional district — says he moved to New Buffalo to retire without any plans to run for political office. But that changed after redistricting caused Michigan’s new 5th district to stretch across the entire bottom of the state, from Lake Michigan to Lake Erie. And that means Goldberg is facing incumbent Republican Tim Walberg, who he says is too extreme.

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Running for Michigan’s 5th congressional district is Republican incumbent Representative Tim Walberg, facing Democrat Bart Goldberg in the November election.
Walberg was first elected to congress 11 years ago. Goldberg is an attorney from New Buffalo.
If you had asked Bart Goldberg two years ago what he’d be doing in 2022, running for congress again probably wouldn’t have been on the attorney’s mind. But he says 2020 changed everything.
“I was so concerned about the fate of our country, I just felt like democracy was hanging on by a thread,” Goldberg said. “Then January 6 happened.”
