Good. Enough of Stabenow. Levin needs replacing, too.

Hot damn.

He gave Dingellberry a heck of a fight considering the late start. This has gotta make the cow constipated.

Steele is an example of a loss that wasn’t quite a total loss. He cost the democrats and unions a lot more money than they should have had to spend.

And seats.... at the state and local level I think a total of 9. And Dingell and the DNC spent a fortune. Dingell won, but what?

* He is in the Minority
* He lost his Chairmanship

The question begs, is he the king of nothing...

The only name I’ve heard floated is John Engler.

He would give Big Debbie a run for her money but I prefer Steele. Besides, Engler says he isn’t running.

About last January I was getting the robo-calls from some state organization asking my preference of the names listed to run against Stabenow. I don’t remember them all, but those I do were John Engler, Mike Bishop, Pete Hoekstra, Terri-Lynn Land and another I had never heard of. Steele wasn’t listed.

I voted for Hoekstra for governor in the primary but I still prefer Steele over the names listed.

From a personal source close to John. He will not run. He would not want the pay cut. And he likes what he is doing.

I think that Steele is going to run. It’s possible that Saul Anuzis will run and he has personal wealth to draw upon.

"Pete Hoekstra may run also."

Hoekstra ruled himself out a month or 2 ago.

As to Saul Anuzis, please no.

A source close to John says he will not run. He would have to take a pay cut and feels he is too old.

Saul Anuzis has the asset of being a multimillionaire who earned his wealth in the telecommunications business. I don’t know how he stands on the issues. Some say he’s a failed party chairman, but it’s worth noting that durng George W. Bush’s second term, Republicans were eviscerated in most of the northern tier and northern coastal states. That was a national trend which the state parties could do little to prevent.

He is bad news to the nth degree. One of the worst state party chairs in the country during his tenure. I won’t be supporting him under any circumstances.

The man is failure. And don’t find him to be an attractive candidate irregardless of his failed record.

If he’s the nominee I’d support him of course, but it’s best if he’s not the nominee.
