Gov. Snyder backs Hoekstra in U.S. Senate race

Gov. Rick Snyder has endorsed former rival Pete Hoekstra for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate.

MLive.com reports the announcement came in Southfield:

“We need the best, and that’s why I’m proud to be here today to endorse Pete Hoekstra,” Snyder said this morning at a press conference in Southfield. “It’s a great opportunity because he’s a person — through the campaign process — I gained a lot of respect for in recognition that he is the right person for this position.”

Hoekstra is a former U.S. Congressman who left Congress to run for governor last year. Snyder bested Hoekstra, former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, and Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard.

During the his campaign to be governor, Hoekstra brought a wide range of extreme right wing political activists to the state to stump for him. He also admitted to participating in activities with the shadowy The Family group.

The GOP primary to challenge U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Lansing) is a field of five candidates. The candidates include Detroit charter school executive Clark Durant, former Kent County Probate Judge Randy Hekman, Roscommon businessman Peter Konetchy and Midland resident Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan.

State Democrats were quick to respond to the endorsement Monday morning:

“It is going to take a lot more than an endorsement from one of the most unpopular Governor’s in the country to make the people in Michigan support a Congressman-turned lobbyist like Pete Hoekstra. Even conservatives are troubled by Hoekstra’s support of bailout money paying for the bonuses of Wall Street CEOs and his long track record of backing tax giveaways for special interests like oil companies. Does the Governor seriously think a lobbyist is the best person to fight for the people of Michigan in Washington?”
