Michigan's 5th congressional district is a United States congressional district in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

It is currently a mostly industrial area,[5] with Arenac County, Iosco County, and Tuscola County being the main exceptions. From 2003 to 2013 it encompassed much of the area south of Saginaw Bay. It consisted of all of Tuscola and Genesee counties and the southeast portion of Bay and the eastern portion of Saginaw counties in the eastern-central portion of the state during that time. The district was extended into the upper mitt for the 2012 redistricting and most of Tuscola County was cut out.

The seat of the district is currently occupied by Democrat Dan Kildee. His uncle, Dale Kildee, previously represented the district.[6]

Predecessors

From 1873 to 1993, the 5th was based in the Grand Rapids area of Western Michigan. Its most notable occupant was Gerald Ford, who in 1974 became the 38th President of the United States upon the resignation of Richard Nixon, at the height of the infamous Watergate Scandal. From 1993 to 2003, it was drawn as a district including Bay City, Saginaw and the Thumb.

Notes

  1. ^ With a plurality of 10 votes, Richardson received a certificate of election from the board of state canvassers. Incumbent Charles E. Belknap requested a recount in Ionia County, alleging irregularities. The Michigan Supreme Court ordered the recount on February 3, 1893, which counted a plurality of 19 votes for Belknap. The new board of state canvassers then issued a certificate of election to Belknap. The contest was brought to the U.S. House of Representatives on August 8, 1893. Following floor debate on the validity of the contestants' credentials, the House seated Richardson, referring the matter to the Committee on Elections. Following further examination, the committee issued a report upholding Richardson's claim to the seat.[]
