There are five candidates for US senate running against Stabenow. The good ole GOP group is divided between Pete Hoekstra and Clark Durant. The other three candidates are Gary Glenn, Randy Hekman and Peter Konetchy. Of the five candidates I have heard three. Pete Hoekstra when he ran for governor of Michigan. He did not run on his congressional record in the house because he voted as a democrat. Hoekstra did not support Right to Work laws or the ban on burning the AMerican flag. BUT, he did support $850 billion Wall Street bailout, raising the debt ceiling to $11 trillion, $223 million "Bridge to Nowhere" and the Brady Bill gun control law. How can any TP member support Hoekstra???? Gary Glenn is fresh on the scene. When I asked what he would do about corruption in government, Gary talked around the question with political speak. I had to state he did not answer my question. Then he stated he is against corruption. Not much of an answer. Peter Konetchy is my first choice because he knows the CONSTITUTION and when asked questions he gave answers while refering to the Constitution as the basis for his answers. He was the first to step out with his own money and not wait for good old boy backing. Randy Hekman is a lawyer and has been a judge. Do we need more lawyers? The lawyers are the ones that have messed up our government by making excessive and unnecessary laws and regulations.
I ask all Michigan TP people to go to the web sites of all five candidates and read about them. Find out when they decided to run and which one flip flopped on running. Who promotes the Constitution on their web site? This election is about restoring our country to a Constitutional Republican not name recognition. Name recognition will come about by dissemination of information and foot work at the grassroots level regarding candidates. Take every opportunity to hear the candidates. If we are to repair the damage done to this country, then we as TPers must vet the candidates and listen to what they say and think about what they do not say. Do they speak around the question?.
