The 1st District of Michigan has long been considered a Republican stronghold, and according to Scott LaDeur, a political science professor at North Central Community College in Petoskey, redistricting only solidified that stance.

Bergman, who has held the office since 2017, thinks that rural health care could be improved by eliminating some of the federal bureaucracy regulating it.
