David Bonior

From dKosopedia

David Bonior was born June 6, 1945 in Detroit, Michigan. He was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in 1972, and served there until his election to Congress in 1976, where he represented Michigan's 12th District, based in Macomb County. After 1992 redistricting, his district was renumbered as the 10th, in southeast Michigan. He was elected Majority Whip by his Democratic colleagues in 1991, and served as Democratic whip until his retirement in 2002. In that year, a Republican redistricting plan combined Bonior's district with that of fellow Democrat Sander Levin. Rather than face Levin in a bruising primary battle, Bonior chose to run for Governor. He lost the primary to state Attorney General Jennifer Granholm, who went on to win in November.

Bonior is a Catholic and as a result considered himself "pro-life", but was relatively progressive on a number of other issues. He voted against NAFTA in 1993 and opposes the war in Iraq.
