Is Lon Johnson prepping for round 2 with Congressman Jack Bergman?

A recent Facebook post seems to show the former MDP Chair, who lost to Bergman in 2016, may be thinking about a rematch this fall.

All he'd have to do is win a write in campaign this summer against Matt Morgan after Morgan was thrown off the ballot for using a P.O. Box instead of his real address.

Bergman beat Johnson by 15%, 55-40, aided by a strong performance in Northern Michigan from President Trump.

So why might Johnson be thinking about jumping in?

This Facebook post isn't from someone who's NOT considering a run:

Stay tuned!

And it looks like Morgan was watching... He just released a video this morning calling for the shut down of line 5! :)
