Romney endorses Hoekstra in Michigan GOP governor primary
The Hill ^ | 4-22-10 | Aaron Blake

Mitt Romney is wading into the GOP governor's primary in Michigan, and he's backing Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.).

Hoekstra faces state Attorney General Mike Cox and businessman Rick Snyder in a pitched primary battle. Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) is term-limited, and Democrats are waging their own primary battle.

Mitt was born here and for all his organizational strength here, he couldn't break 45% in the primary.

Mitt Romney supported Romneycare before he was against it nationally. Hoekstra was against the TARP before he was for it.

We don't need Washington politicians or wannabes like Romney. Mike Cox for Governor

The key to the Hoekstra campaign is his high-profile position on turtle fences. (Note: the video clip has some bleeped out coarse language and crude references. Also note that the turtle fence is taken very much out of context.)

At least Romney won MA by 50% or more in 2008, which is something McCain couldn’t do in AZ. In fact, he was the only top tier candidate of either party who could not win his/her home state primary by 50% or more.

Why is Heokstra running for Gov.? He is a good man in his subcommittee. Well, Cox has a very professional looking website. Good luck to him.

Nobody's running away with this. It's a 3 way race between Cox, Hoekstra, and liberal Rick Snyder. Bouchard and George are back in the pack.

Against the dems, all are leading, but I think Snyder will lose once more of his outsourcing jobs to China gets press. Michigan despises outsourcing. Dick DeVos lost in 2006 because of outsourcing jobs.

Well, you can only make "just so much" money on AmWay before you plateau. [snicker]

Rather funny, to me. JimRob must have designed a ‘bot for any FR post that has “that name” in it.

I just added another one. There aren’t enough derogatory key words in the language to describe Romney.

Cox, Hoekstra, and Bouchard have spoken at tea party events. Snyder avoids them.

Cox has my vote.

I’m sure whatever rules we have about keywords don’t apply for these types of threads. :-)

Mike Cox the RINO attorney general is a sniveling worm who had his head up granholm’s butt for 8 years. Cox had numerous opportunities to indict that commie bitch granholm for theft, malfeasance and misappropriation of government funds.

He did nothing because he was paid off like the crook he was and is. Cox is a disgusting RINO maggot.

Did you watch the debate last night?

This is the first time I have seen them all together.

I liked the way Sheriff Bouchard talked about the 10th Amendment.

Unfortunately, I missed it since I was tied up in work.

I'm trying to find it online unedited.

Good luck, I even called the MiGop to ask them to put it on their site...prominently for those who missed it. That should have been done right away.

But of course, I was transferred around from answering machine to voice mail to secretaries who hadn't a clue.

Good grief, no wonder we can't get ahead of the Dems in PR, the GOP is clueless!
