Mich. GOP senate candidate Hoekstra raises $1 million in third quarter
A day after Clark Durant announced that he had raised $750,000 for his campaign for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Debbie Stabenow, primary opponent Pete Hoekstra trumped him by raising $1 million in the same time frame.
The Durant campaign pointed out that Hoekstra had more time to raise funds because he declared his candidacy sooner. Durant and Hoekstra are expected to be the two strongest candidates in the primary, which also features several others.
In the first poll taken in the race, Hoekstra came in at 51 percent, with Durant at three percent and everyone else lagging even further behind.
