Michigan Senate: Hoekstra Considering Run

Former Representative Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) “said Friday that he’s considering challenging Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) in 2012,” The Hill reports.

Hoekstra, a former nine-term congressman who retired in 2010 to pursue an unsuccessful gubernatorial bid, said he’ll make up his mind about a Senate run over the next few months.

"We’ll take a look at it, we’ll take two or three months, and then we’ll make a decision," Hoekstra said in a video interview with the conservative magazine Newsmax. "The most important thing is that Republicans need to unite, and we need to focus on not beating each other — we need to focus on November of 2012, when we have to have the right Republican candidate to take out Debbie Stabenow, and get a good, conservative voice in the Senate, and get a good, conservative vote to replace hers."
