Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press Published 3:19 PM EDT Oct 5, 2018 WASHINGTON — Democratic congressional candidate Matt Longjohn says he's on solid legal ground calling himself an "M.D.," no matter what Republicans say. On Friday, his campaign pointed out a section of the Michigan Public Health Code that seems to say it's OK for him to point out that he has a medical degree despite another section of the code that appears to suggest otherwise. "The fact that (U.S. Rep.) Fred Upton (Longjohn's opponent) and the Republican Party cherry-picked a code with out giving you the full view is wrong," Longjohn's campaign manager, Ben Young, said to the Free Press in an email Friday.

Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press Published 3:10 PM EDT Oct 3, 2018 WASHINGTON – In his ads and on his campaign site as the Democratic nominee in Michigan’s 6th Congressional District, Matt Longjohn refers to himself as an “M.D.” But is he a medical doctor? According to a story published Wednesday by the Michigan Information & Research Service (MIRS), Longjohn isn’t licensed in Michigan or in his former home state, Illinois, as a medical doctor, though he earned a medical degree at Tulane University and did his residency at Northwestern University.
