Republican Members of the Michigan delegation are lining up to help their former colleague, ex-Rep. Pete Hoekstra, fill his Senate campaign coffers.
Almost every Michigan GOP House Member will headline a lunchtime fundraiser for Hoekstra’s campaign on Sept. 19 near Capitol Hill, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by Roll Call.
Hoekstra is the leading GOP candidate to challenge Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) in 2012, but he’s not the only Republican in the hunt. He’s rolled out a slew of endorsements this summer as his potential primary challengers make noise.
Former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., candidate for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, holds his hand over his heart during the singing of the national anthem as he waits to take the stage for his town hall campaign rally with Sen. John McCain at the Pinkerton Academy in Derry, N.H., on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014.
