WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Congressman Fred Upton is among many from Michigan thanking retiring Congressman John Dingell for his 59 years of service on Capitol Hill.  The southwest Michigan Republican called it a pleasure to work with the larger-than-life Democrat, noting they were able to tackle several issues from updating pipeline safety to reforming the auto industry on a bipartisan basis.

Dingell announced Monday he will not seek a 30th term in the House.  He was first elected in 1955 to finish the term of his late father, who had held office since 1933.
