As a Republican and Tea Party activist, I am very worried about the direction that our country is heading. We are spending too much and saving too little. Taxes are going up and the President thinks that business owners didn't build their own businesses. We need a leader in Washington who will stand up and fight for our Michigan values. We need someone who will fight for our businesses and fight for the middle class. That man is Pete Hoekstra. Pete was instrumental in fighting back against the Democrat tax and spend machine when he was in Congress. He knows that it will be very difficult be beat Debbie Stabenow and he is willing to take up the challenge. In my opinion, he is the best candidate to take on Debbie Stabenow. He has the experience, the knowledge and the guts to fight and win.
