“I tell everyone I represent the thumb of Michigan, which is really the peninsula…It’s surrounded by a lot of lakes, a lot of parks, a lot of outdoor recreation. And we’re really blessed to have that much natural beauty and that much opportunity to really be outdoors—whether it be skiing in the winter, snowmobiling, or in you know, in the fall with the trees and, and whatnot. And, of course in the summer with with the lakes. I don’t think you can find a more beautiful place than the thumb of Michigan.” — Congresswoman Lisa McClain (R-MI)
