All but one of Michigan's 15 representatives in the U.S. House say they'll run for re-election in 2012, the Associated Press reports. From the AP:

...according to an Associated Press survey of members this week and despite a coming redistricting process that in some cases could vastly impact the physical makeup of their districts. The lone holdout in the delegation is Republican Rep. Thaddeus McCotter of Livonia, who declined to provide a "yes" or "no" response to whether he would run again next year, saying only that he was focused on serving his constituents. District boundaries will be redrawn based on U.S. Census counts, and Republicans who lead the state House and Senate control the process. Michigan was the only state to lose population in the past decade and will drop one of its congressional seats.
