Politico named the potential matchup between former Republican U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra and incumbent Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow as one of the top ten Senate races in the country for 2012. The publication says:

Pete Hoekstra’s political conundrum was crystallized earlier this month when he brought in Iowa Rep. Steve King to stump for him. It was a signal to wary conservatives that he’s one of them. But as The Macomb Daily opined: “It wasn’t an attempt to win over independent voters who aren’t necessarily big fans of incumbent Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow.” Hoekstra’s $1 million quarter may have put the fundraising demons to bed, but charter school co-founder Clark Durant’s $750,000 total was enough to get the front-runner’s attention.

Who won October: Stabenow

Stabenow outraised Hoekstra in October, $1.2 million to $1 million, and she currently has about $5 million on hand for the campaign. Hoekstra is facing several primary opponents, the strongest of which is likely to be Clark Durant, a charter schools advocate with the backing of several high-profile Michigan Republicans. But the early primary polling shows Hoekstra with a massive lead with more than half the vote and Durant only at three percent. There has been no polling done yet on a possible Hoekstra/Stabenow race.
