Retired General, former Kalkaska County Sheriff running for U.S. Congress

FIFE LAKE (WKZO) -- Citing frustration with the government, former Kalkaska County sheriff and retired general Jerry Cannon is running for Congress.

The Democrat is running in the 1st Congressional District, with that seat currently held by Republican Dan Benishek of Crystal Falls.  In a statement announcing his campaign, Cannon said people have counted on him to step up and serve the community in Northern Michigan, and added politicians like Benishek have "forgotten why they were sent there."

The National Republican Congressional Committee issued a statement calling Cannon "an uber-liberal Pelosi-supporting candidate."
