Joe Schwarz provides insight on the race for Michigan's 7th District in the Detroit Free Press
Joe Schwarz was quoted in a Detroit Free Press article about Michigan's seventh district. The district includes the areas surrounding Battle Creek, Ann Arbor and north to Lansing. Schwarz described the district to the Free Press, "You've got liberals in the cities, moderates in the suburbs and conservatives in the rural townships." Recent political polls put the race between Democratic incumbent Mark Schauer and former congressman Tim Walberg dead even. Joe Schwarz represented Michigan's seventh district in Congress from 2005 to 2007.
