Longest-serving Congressman Aims To Groom Future Leaders

The longest-serving member in the history of Congress says the fate of the nation depends on grooming a new generation of leaders.

Now approaching his 89th birthday, Dingell tells WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter that retirement does not equal an end to public service.
