Republicans held onto the U.S. 1st Congressional seat. Incumbent Rep. Jack Bergman beat his Democratic challenger Matt Morgan handily. As of Tuesday night, Bergman had around 57 percent of the vote in northern Michigan, winning by more than ten percentage points.
He's now preparing for his second term representing northern lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
"I went [to Congress] a couple of years ago, made some promises, and I’ve tried everything I can to keep those promises to the constituents of the first district, and people realize that," says Bergman.
