Republicans are gunning for U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow as at least six GOP hopefuls are looking at taking her on.
Oakland County Sheriff and former state senator Mike Bouchard is among those. He will announce his formal candidacy within a week or two. Oakland County prosecutor David Gorcyca is also eyeing a bid as is Peter Cummings, the son in law of GOP financier Max Fisher.
The election is not until next year, but the GOP believes democrat Stabenow is vulnerable, thus the high interest in running against her.
Contrast that to the apparent inability of the GOP to find an early and willing challenger to take on democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
