A letter from Jack Hoogendyk

Today, I received a letter from Jack Hoogendyk. I’ve pulled out 1 paragraph that I think is important.

Thank you again for your faith in our campaign and the principles on which it stands: less government, lower taxes, individual responsibility, a strong national defense, and the preservation of the values that made this country the greatest nation on earth.

He received over 30,000 signatures from all 83 Michigan counties – a strong showing. He has a 75% name recognition compared to 95% for Sen Levin.  He has a legitimate chance to defeat Carl Levin.

Here’s part of Carl Levin’s glorious record (taken from ontheissues.org):

  • Voted NO on barring HHS grants to organizations that perform abortions. (Oct 2007)
