Gary Glenn: On the Road to the United States Senate

Gary Glenn, Michigan Republican candidate for the United States Senate has been endorsed by Governor Mike Huckabee, National Right to Work and most recently by a coalition of 43 Michigan TEA Party organizations (MI 4 Conservative Senate).  National pundits assume that his challenger, Pete Hoekstra, a former congressman for 18 years, who supported TARP and bailouts; voted for debt limit increases, supported the Brady Bill; opposed Right to Work and was endorsed by Jimmy Hoffa, is the likely nominee based on name recognition and voter apathy.  They don't know the time in which they live and they don't know Gary.  If you want to see one of the most remarkable political upsets in the 2012 election cycle, just watch Gary.  To paraphrase President Kennedy speaking of Winston Churchill, Gary Glenn, more than anyone we know, mobilizes truth and sends it into battle.

Here is Gary Glenn interviewed this morning on a Michigan morning radio program:

Michigan GOP US Senate Candidates' Debate

Mich. tea partiers seek consensus Senate pick
By Kathy Barks Hoffman
Many of Michigan's tea party activists are trying to coalesce behind one of the eight Republicans running for the chance to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, but the infighting over whether a unified effort is the way to go could harm GOP chances to deny Stabenow a third term.

The movement is patterned on successful efforts by Indiana tea party groups that have rallied behind Richard Mourdock as the tea party challenger to Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar. In Michigan, more than 50 tea party groups have joined under the name Michigan 4 Conservative Senate, or MI4CS for short, to try to avoid dispersing their clout in a field crowded with conservatives.

The group is sponsoring a Senate debate Saturday at Central Michigan University and plans to return to the Mount Pleasant campus on Feb. 25 to hold a straw poll and decide which candidate will get the group's backing leading up to the August GOP primary.

Glenn Declares Candidacy for U.S. Senate

* Marriage Protection Amendment co-author
* Right to Work and School Choice leader
* Health care reform “pioneer”


Midland, Mich. — Gary Glenn, 53, of Midland Wednesday filed a formal statement of candidacy for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan, for the U.S. Senate in 2012.  Glenn, who said he has crossed the $5,000 fundraising threshhold at which federal election law requires a formal statement of candidacy, is the only GOP candidate to formally file after former Rep. Pete Hoekstra announced his entry into the race.

Noting Hoekstra's votes for the $850 billion Wall Street bailout, earmarks such as the $223 million "Bridge to Nowhere," and budgets and debt ceiling increases that added trillions of dollars to the national debt, Glenn cited "Einstein's definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."

"The last twenty years, Debbie Stabenow and Pete Hoekstra both voted for red-ink budgets and debt ceiling increases that resulted in trillions in crushing new debt on our economy and our children's future," Glenn said. "A Democrat in Congress fourteen years, a Republican for eighteen years plus two more as a lobbyist, a total of over three decades as part of the go along to get along culture that got us where we are now. If we want to end the fiscal insanity in Washington, is it rational to expect we'll get a different result if we keep sending the same people back there over and over again?"

Glenn said the nation's "economy, security, liberties, moral foundation, and founding principles — all that’s made America and Americans exceptional in the history of the world – are under attack from within."

“If they're not stopped, liberal ideologues like Debbie Stabenow and Barack Obama will rob our children of their birthright and turn our country into the United Socialist States of America," Glenn said. "My mission, commitment, and duty is to do whatever I can to help senators like Jim DeMint and Rand Paul and Mike Lee stop them.”
