Kildee flies into Lansing on Air Force One

Posted: Updated:

(02/07/14)  - Representative Dan Kildee was on stage when President Barack Obama signed the Farm Bill.

Kildee was given the full VIP treatment, which included a ride on Air Force One.

"You know, that was pretty cool," Kildee said.

Kildee wasn't the only member of congress from Michigan on board.

Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin flew into Capital Region International Airport on the presidential plane as well.

Kildee says the Commander-in-Chief was never far away.

"He sat with us for most of the flight, so it was nice, we had a good conversation," Kildee said.

Even though the farm bill was focus of the day, Killdee says he and the President talked about Michigan politics.

"We mostly talked about the politics here in Michigan and what is going on. But also maybe try and build on the farm bill success with some other bipartisan work in congress, it will be a little tougher, the immigration bill would be one way to start," Kildee said.
