Michigan Senate: Hoekstra Won’t Run

Former “Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) will not challenge Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) in 2012, the former congressman announced in a statement Friday,” Hotline On Call reports.

“After serious consideration and many discussions with friends and supporters, Diane and I have made the decision that I will not be a candidate for the United States Senate in 2012,” Hoekstra said in a statement posted to his firm’s website Friday. “This was an extremely difficult decision for us to make as we saw strong points both for and against running. However, in our final analysis, we agreed that it was not in the best interest of our family at this time to enter the race.”
