Mike Callton is the representative-elect for District 87 in the Michigan House of Representatives in the November 2, 2010 state legislative elections. Callton faced Greg Grives in the general election on November 2, 2010.

Controversy

Though he has yet to cast a single vote, Callton is one of just three Republicans to receive campaign donations from the Michigan Education Association- the labor union of the majority of Michigan public school employees.[1]

The union, which opposes tax and budget cuts, donated $5,000 to Callton's campaign- more than they gave to the Speaker of the Michigan House and equal to their donation to the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which oversees, among other things, school spending.[1]

Though recent polling shows that, a large percentage of teachers nationwide consider themselves 'conservative,"[2] of the 91 candidates for the Michigan State Senate and House, only three are Republicans.[1]
