Remember Herman Cain?

Well, Jack Hoogendyk certainly does.

The Kalamazoo Republican, who is running for Fred Upton’s 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 Hoogendyk’s limited government conservatism.

“Just the fact that Mr. Hoogendyk spent six years in public office and never voted for a tax increase shows he’s unafraid to stand up to the ‘Goliath’ of big government,” Cain said.

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!
