Gary Glenn Drops Out of U.S. Senate Race

A tea party favorite in the Republican race for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow has dropped out and thrown his support to Clark Durant.
Gary Glenn told The Associated Press on Thursday that he doesn't think GOP front-runner Pete Hoekstra can beat Stabenow because he voted for the Wall Street bailout, which Stabenow opposed.
Glenn broke the news to supporters Thursday evening. The Durant campaign is expected to announce Glenn's decision shortly.
Hoekstra is running as a conservative and has been helped by the fact that Durant, Glenn and Randy Hekman were splitting much of the tea party vote.
Glenn's withdrawal could make Durant more of a threat in the Aug. 7 primary election, although Hoekstra has a slight edge in cash on hand.

    "I'm so surprised Gary Glenn dropped out!" said nobody ever.

    I firmly believe that Clark Durant is the best person for this job and the one that can beat Debbie and really return us to a representative democracy guided by the precepts of our constitution.
