Remember Herman Cain?
Well, Jack Hoogendyk certainly does.
The Kalamazoo Republican, who is running for Fred Uptons 6th District Congressional post, has been endorsed by the former presidential candidate.
Cain sent out a press release Thursday, welcoming Hoogendyk into the Army of Davids.
In the release, Cain said Hoogendyk has committed to his so-called 9-9-9 plan, calling for a 9 percent tax rate on personal income, 9 percent on corporate income and 9 percent on national sales tax.
The current tax code is confusing and counter-productive. It stifles prosperity, Hoogendyk said in the release.
Cain praised Hoogendyks limited government conservatism.
Just the fact that Mr. Hoogendyk spent six years in public office and never voted for a tax increase shows hes unafraid to stand up to the Goliath of big government, Cain said.

Jack Joogendyk is a conservative’s conservative who is supported by the TEA Party. Fred Upton is RINO Establishment hack. I hope that Michigan conservatives come through here.
The primary is August 7.
Fred Upton = Access to large, wonderful boobies though...
Go Jack Jasfjuewisdfj!
I’ve met Jack a couple of times. He seems like a good guy.
Hard to pronounce name aside, he looks like a good man; I hope he wins.
This is a primary to watch. A Hoogendyk victory would be a tonic for conservatives,
I’m just gonna call him the Dutchman from now on.
K-zoo? A college town....
“Im just gonna call him the Dutchman from now on.”
I want to call him Congressman.
Very liberal college town.
I know. I lived there for a bit. Before I moved to Jackson. [mutters]
Hoodendyk would be a strong conservative voice and the House GOP Caucus needs that. Also, this is a safely Republican district.
I live in Jackson county (Norvell) but haven’t been to town in at least a year. I grew up in Hanover.
I know. I was the DJ in Albion. Those were the days, indeed.
Glad to hear this news. The only thing Fred Upton has going for him is an incredibly attractive niece.
Thanks for the pings. :’)
Whoops, and thanks cripplecreek!
Somebody’s gonna try to take out Rhino Freddie? Awesome!
Back in 2002 I volunteered for the Dale Sugars campaign. We got shellacked—I think the final tally was 70 for Upton, 30 for Sugars—but it was worth it to try to unseat one of Congress’ biggest rhinos. Sugars was and is a good man, but we got outspent 1,000,000 to 100,000. Hope this challenger has good funding and a professional staff. Underfunded and inexperienced, we got killed. Has Freddie trotted out his hunting jacket and shotgun in ads yet? That’s what he did 10 years ago.
I’ll contribute as soon as I get paid—my current Congressman, Rep. Culberson, doesn’t need the money. Already contributed to Ted Cruz—he looks like a good bet to replace Kay Bailey Hutchison in the Senate. Whatever happens at the Presidential level, let’s make elective bodies from local school board to Federal Congress more like the Tea Party! Rebellion is brewing and don’t let our reps forget it!
