    SAGINAW, Mich. – Michigan Republican John James is officially in the senate primary race. Today he filed petition signatures to qualify. Afterwards, James toured general machine services in Saginaw. That's a manufacturing business. The West Point graduate and army combat veteran operates a family business. He believes that experience will help him lead the state saying he has a passion for service. “It’s the same reason I came back to Michigan when there’s area of home that look worse than the combat zone I’m flying in. It’s the same reason I’m going to Washington now to fight four our condition,...

    Businessman and combat veteran John James has the inside track to the Republican nomination for Senate in Michigan after Rep. Fred Upton dropped plans to run and opted for re-election to the House. James, a first-time candidate, outperformed Upton in public and private polling. That Republican primary voters prefer a novice outsider to a respected lawmaker with a lengthy record of accomplishment reveals the extent to which rejection of the political establishment is dominating GOP politics. “You want someone who is real. That’s how President Trump got elected,” said Rep. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., who broke ranks and endorsed James over...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)You might think MSNBC is a pretty friendly venue for Democratic politicians, and usually you’d be right. But woe unto the Democrat who strays even slightly from the progressive line — as Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow found out the hard way Tuesday afternoon. Stabenow was in the middle of a victory lap with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, after the agriculture chair’s farm bill sailed through the Senate to the president’s desk. The massive bill approves nearly $1 trillion in spending over the next decade, with most of the funding for the food stamp program. The Democratic senator explained how she was...

    ( -- One hour before the Senate voted on its sweeping immigration reform bill, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who supported the legislation, said she had “no idea” how many DUIs an illegal alien can have under the bill and still be made a legal resident of the United States. On Capitol Hill on Thursday, asked Stabenow, “Under the Senate immigration bill, how many DUIs can an illegal alien have and still be legalized?” Stabenow said, “Gosh, I have no idea. I mean, I don’t -- how many DUIs?” “Did you vote on the bill?” Knopf asked. “You’re with who?”...

    More than 6 million Americans have been out of work for more than six months and they're stepping up efforts to join together in support of increased help from the federal government, writes Annie Lowrey of the Michigan Messenger, who's written several in-depth stories on the problem of long-term unemployment. "99ers" — those long-term unemployed who have exhausted all available 99 weeks of unemployment benefits — have formed the American 99ers Union to lobby Congress to create a Tier V of federal unemployment benefits, she reports. The coalition is comprised of a number of groups: Advocacy For the Long Term...

    Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) said on Fox News Sunday that the U.S. House bill containing the pro-life Stupak Amendment changes long-established law. Sen. Stabenow is referring to the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits Medicaid from funding abortions, and is a provision that Americans United for Life successfully defended before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1980. The “settled policy” is that the American public does not want federal funds paying for abortions or for insurance plans that cover abortions; however, in the current U.S. Senate health bill, the abortion lobby has snuck in abortion funding and coverage through accounting schemes and deceptive...

    We have yet another moonbat senator to add to the list: Michigan Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. This woman thinks that right now would be the perfect time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Interviewed on a talk show yesterday, Stabenow said, "I think it's absolutely time to pass a standard. Now, whether it's called the Fairness Doctrine or something else - I absolutely think it's time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think...

    UPDATE: We have been reminded that Senator Stabenow's husband, Thomas Athans, is the co-founder of the liberal TalkUSA Radio network and is now the Executive Vice-President of liberal Air America. Liberal talk radio has of course failed miserably every time it has been tried, all the while watching it's conservative counterpart's success soar. Which might lead one to believe that Senator Stabenow, in addition to her zealous will to slam the fist of government down upon her opponents, has some business skin in the game as well. If you can't beat 'em, censor 'em. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Michael Calderone in today's Politico...

Senator Stabenow was speaking on the air with liberal talk radio host Bill Press and to his eleven listeners nationwide. She insisted that she "think(s) it’s absolutely time to pass a standard" and indicated she had "already had some discussions...

    Poll says Stabenow holds big lead over GOP rivals 6/2/2005, 12:59 a.m. ET The Associated Press LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow held big leads over three declared Republican challengers and one possible rival in the 2006 election, according to a recent poll of likely Michigan voters. The first-term senator held leads of 27 percent to 29 percent in the poll of 600 people conducted May 22-26 by Lansing-based EPIC/MRA. The results have a margin of sampling error of 4 percentage points either way. Michigan Republican Chairman Saul Anuzis told The Detroit News that "it is very,...

    Character assassination apparently has become the Democrats' stock-in-trade these days on Capitol Hill. Witness Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who departed from his prepared text to denounce one of President Bush's judicial nominees — a victim of Democratic filibustering — by saying the judge has "a problem" based on "his confidential report from the FBI." Reid wasn't offering up any details — which his office seems to think lets him off the hook. Because the problem is that those FBI background reports, as Reid himself conceded, are "confidential." And Senate rules prohibit a member from publicly disclosing confidential information —...

    Stabenow has $2.8 million heading into re-election campaign 4/13/2005, 5:38 p.m. ET By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., reported more than $2.8 million on hand in her campaign finance report Wednesday, opening a busy year of fund-raising before her re-election campaign. Stabenow collected slightly more than $1 million during the first three months of the year, and enters the spring with a sizable bankroll as several Republicans begin the process of mounting a campaign to defeat her. Stabenow officials said the senator spent more than $268,000 during the quarter, but the fund-raising totals...

    While the media continues its quest to "expose" conservative pundits on the Bush administration payroll, reporters don't seem to have any qualms about the fact that the nation's top elected Democrats helped bankroll liberal commentators on Air America and North Dakota talker Ed Schultz. Unlike the Armstrong Williams case, there's been no outrage over the fact that Sens. Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle and Debbie Stabenow lined up $1.8 million in funding for Democracy Radio, which underwrote Mr. Schultz's show. According to the Washington Post, Democracy Radio is "a non-profit organization" run by Stabenow's husband, Tom Athans, "with a board composed...
