GRAND RAPIDS, MI Whereas one could argue civility lacked just months ago, it shined during the first debate between U.S. Rep. Justin Amash and local businessman Bob Goodrich.

And that should be heralded as an accomplishment of the democratic process, seeing opposing candidates discuss debate logistics on their own terms, lauded moderator and WOOD-TV 8 political reporter Rick Albin.

It was earlier in July when the Amash camp turned down the station's invitation to a debate, citing then-primary challenger Brian Ellis' "feckless smear campaign" against the incumbent. Despite Ellis' repeated requests for a debate, none took place.

Amash, R-Cascade Township, on primary night exclaimed he ran for Congress to stop people like Ellis, and during the hour-long discussion Wednesday at Grand Valley State University's Eberhard Center, he again vowed to represent ordinary Americans who can't win a fight against special interests if re-elected in November.
