Rob Davidson, an emergency physician from western Michigan, had never considered running for Congress. Then came the town hall meeting in early 2017 that Davidson decided to attend. The 46-year-old Democrat found himself going one-on-one with Rep. Bill Huizenga, his Republican congressman for six years.
“I told him about my patients,” Davidson recalled. “I see, every shift, some impact of not having adequate health care, not having dental insurance or a doctor at all.”
