Former state Rep. Patricia (Pan) Godchaux, a moderate Republican from Birmingham, said Tuesday that she'll make a long-shot bid to take on incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg, a Bloomfield Hills Republican, in the GOP's August primary.
"The numbers in the district are showing us that the district is more moderate than he is, and I'm more moderate than he is," Godchaux, 59, said Tuesday"""
This is not good news for Knollenberg. He's won tough races by easy margins before, but this is another matter.
The district is completely in Oakland County, and is a 51/49 Bush district.
