Hoekstra Surges in Latest Poll
The Race for the Republican nomination for Michigan Governor is heating up. Well known and respected Congressman Pete Hoekstra pulled into a tie with Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. Hoekstra had previously been in second down 3% points. This in the space of a week.
This primary race is getting really exciting. Republicans have some really talented people running along with some proven vote getters. Terri Lynn Land and Mike Cox have won and currently hold State wide office as Secretary of State, and Attorney General respectively. Mike Cox was holding at 3rd place.
As the article points out there are two “non politicians” showing interest in running. Perhaps I should say “non professional politicians” They seem to come from opposing wings of the Party. I would put self described “Moderate” newcomer Rick Snyder in the liberal wing of the party. Nick at Right Michigan gave us the heads up on this.
Newcomer Dave Brandon CEO of Dominoes I would not classify as moderate however I don’t know enough about him to put him any place else other than younger and exciting. I get the exciting from the fact that he put out the recent add for dominoes. Nick’s Right Michigan again is the first place I read about the Bandon ad and candidacy.
(edit)3/20/09 4:45pm. After reading Daily Kos, I will put Brandon in the Conservative collum. Ya think?
Thanks for firing me up with your smear tactics DK
This primary season looks like fun to me. Gee maybe we’ll get free pizza! Well maybe not. But like the ad says or at least implies that is the kind of bail out we can understand and appreciate. Also one our government can afford.
