Longest Serving U.S. House Member, Dingell, Expected to Announce Election Year Plans Soon

Lead in text: 
87 year old John Dingell broke the record last year as longest-serving U.S. House member in history
When local Democratic leaders huddled Thursday night at a Downriver UAW hall, they prepared for what has been the norm for more than a half century: supporting John Dingells run for Congress. Dingell has been the voice for southeast Michigan in Washington since his congressman father died in 1955; the Dearborn Democrat hasnt lost any of his 29 re-elections since.
