Like him or not, bash him over his debt ceiling votes or not,  he is still the best candidate to beat Debbie Stabenow. Here are the reasons why I support him.

Pete has been endorsed by Governor Snyder, Congressman Paul Ryan, Herman Cain, Senator Pat Toomey, Governor John Kasich, Congresswoman Michele Bachman to mention just a few.

Pete has been incredibly competitive in polls, closing to within 5 points of Stabenow before the primary and he has been doing well with his fundraising efforts.

He served as the ranking member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, playing an instrumental role in reforming the intelligence community after the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Working with both Democrats and Republicans, including a Democrat president, Pete Hoekstra helped balance the federal budget in the 1990s.  During that time, there was in fact a budget surplus!     
His main primary opponent, Clark Durant, doesn’t have nearly enough name recognition as Pete has.  There have been rumors about him taking too much money out of his non-profit charter school organization. He doesn’t have the “it” factor that Pete has, Pete is just  a real likeable kind of guy, that is accessible and understands business, economics and politics. 

Pete has been endorsed by Right to Life and he is very strong proponent of the lives of the unborn. 
He has supported multiple pieces of legislation over the years that protect unborn children. He supported the Right to Life Act, the Parental Notification and Intervention Act, and the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act. Each of these acts protects the unborn children of the United States.He also supported legislation that rewards families who have adopted children with tax benefits. 

 He will do right by the citizens of Michigan.

Help Pete with a contribution. http://www.hoekstraforsenate.com/

Thjs is such a well written endorsement besides telling the truth as to what is going on in Michigan's new 11th congressional district. Please read Rand Paul's endorsement and make a donation to Kerry's campaign at http://bentivolioforcongress.com/

We are proud to announce that Rand Paul has endorsed Kerry's candidacy!  Please read Senator Paul's endorsement and donate today.
Dear Patriot,
I am proud to endorse Kerry Bentivolio for the House of Representatives and I hope you will join me by helping him today.
A veteran, Kerry Bentivolio is still fighting a battle to defend the Constitution. This time it is against both the progressives in Michigan that support President Obama's wasteful spending and big government and his own party's elites who believe they should be allowed to handpick a successor to Thaddeus McCotter. Instead of supporting the only Republican on the ballot, the establishment GOP has chosen to run a write-in campaign in favor of a person who authored some of the worst tax legislation in Michigan's history. 
Kerry Bentivolio is ready to start taking on big spending Republicans who claim to be conservatives but don’t really act like it. He’s running to represent Michigan's 11th District and he needs our help.
We need conservative leaders who truly want to change the way business is done in Washington. That’s the kind of person Kerry Bentivolio is. He's already promised to propose an amendment to the Constitution that bans the Obamacare tax mandate as his first action in Congress. Kerry Bentivolio is tough, principled, and ready to serve the people rather than special interests.
Kerry's establishment opponent is Nancy Cassis who wrote the Michigan Business Tax, a job-killing proposal that hurt Michigan's economy. We can send a message to the Republican establishment by sending a small government conservative to the House of Representatives like Kerry Bentivolio rather than their handpicked candidate.
Both parties helped put us on the path to a debt crisis by propping up big government spending.The race in Michigan's 11th District is a chance for the Tea Party to send a message to the Republican Party establishment. You are there to represent us!
I proudly endorse Kerry Bentivolio and ask you to join me in supporting him.
For America,
Rand Paul

One would think that after the 2010 election the GOP and establishment politicians have seen what the people are looking for in a politician.
Not so in Michigan, at least not all of Michigan. The new 11th congressional district has been going through some unusual times the last few weeks.
First we lose Thad McCotter because he wasn't able to get the required signatures in an honest way. Once caught, the only way out he saw, was quitting on the spot leaving the seat wide open.
But, there already was another name on the ballot, Kerry Bentivolio. He got all the required signatures, has a huge teaparty following due to his constitutional and fiscally conservative stance.
Kerry is not a politician, but has been in the political circle for some years. He understands the problem and certainly understands what needs to be done. That involves staying true and blue to ones convictions, and that, dear reader, is not what the MI GOP is looking for.  They want someone they can mold and pull strings when needed. They found this person in one Nancy Cassis, a former, term limited state senator, certainly old enough to be retired.  Mrs. Cassis is known to be the Mother of the Michigan MBT, or Business Tax, which she together with former Governor Granholm proudly thought of and endorsed, among other big spending votes.  Mrs Cassis is running now as a write-in.
Mr. Bentivolio continues to fight for his nomination while Mrs. Cassis is lavishly running outrageous vicious lies and commercials with money thrown at her from all the big wig establishment. Many names on that list who endorsed her quite stunned me, especially Congressman Rogers and Congressman Wahlberg. What are they thinking? I am sure they know we are watching them as well and won't forget.  Other names are not surprising.
The establishment continues to ignore Kerry Bentivolio, the latest was an interview with the MI GOP chair who acknowledged that he had someone on the ballot, but would not utter his name.
I strongly support Kerry Bentivolio and hope you will vote for him in the upcoming primary.
