Twins run as political opponents

KENTWOOD, Mich. (AP) — Twin sisters from western Michigan are running for county commissioner seats, but they aren’t endorsing one another. Monica Sparks is running as a Democrat for Kent County’s 12th district seat while her Republican sister, Jessica Ann Tyson, hopes to represent the 13th district. The sisters say they don’t clash on the issues but that they’ll remain loyal to their parties and endorse each other’s opponents.
