Rep. Gary Peters announced his candidacy for retiring Sen. Carl Levin’s seat, officially entering a Democratic field that has been all but cleared for his campaign.
The announcement from Michigan Democratic Senator Carl Levin that he will not seek re-election in 2014 has sparked reaction from several leaders around the state.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow and former Congressman Pete Hoekstra, who is trying to stop her in her third bid for U.S. Senate, have been doing a lot of talking on the campaign trail as they criss-cross the state.
With national conventions out of the way, Michigan Democrats and Republicans are holding their own gatherings this weekend to endorse Supreme Court nominees and hear pep talks from U.S. Senate candidates.
Now that former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra has won Michigan’s Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, it sets up a November match-up with 2-term Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow.
Voters across Metro Detroit are heading to the polls Tuesday to voice their choice in Michigan’s primary elections.
Michigan voters will choose a Republican to take on Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow and could change history by dropping one or both of the state’s two black congressmen in Tuesday’s primary election.
Voters in Michigan will head to the ballot booth Tuesday to decide some races and millage proposals while paring down candidates in other political races.
“Where this got all messed up is when the government and the executive branch started rewriting the rules (to) whatever they wanted,” said Pete Hoekstra, one of several Republicans vying to take on Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow.
U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra is planning to air his campaign’s first television ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
