Gov. Rick Snyder (R) has endorsed former U.S.
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R) in upcoming
Michigan Senator seat race against
incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D).
“Through the campaign process, I gained a lot of respect for Pete. He is a true fiscal conservative, this guy even slept on his couch in his office,” Snyder said. “He’s a person of the highest integrity and I consider him a friend,” he noted.
“We’ve had a great start in the state. But Michigan needs to be in a partnership with Washington, D.C., in terms of philosophy and fiscal discipline,” Hoekstra said.

“She’s (Stabenow) performing much better among independent voters,” said Bernie Porn, the pollster for EPIC/MRA.
“I’ve never been a friend to Washington, D.C., or expanding D.C.,” Hoekstra cited. “This race is not about beating up on Republicans. Because the ultimate prize is not winning the primary, it’s winning the Senate race in November,” he stated.
