Glenn announces bid for U.S. Senate
Another Republican has announced he will run against Michigan U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in next year’s election.
Gary Glenn is president of the Michigan chapter of the conservative American Family Association.
The 53-year-old from Midland says his views on a variety of issues are very different from Senator Stabenow’s.
“I have championed the issue of worker freedom in the past, supporting right-to-work legislation. Debbie Stabenow is on the opposite side of that issue. I was a champion of protecting constitutionally marriage between one man and one woman. Debbie Stabenow is on the opposite side of that issue.
Glenn also says he wants to repeal the new federal health care reform law.
He also believes America can become energy independent if it drills its oil reserves and uses fracking, a process that removes oil and gas from rock formations.
Former U.S. Representative Pete Hoekstra, former Kent County Probate Judge Randy Hekman and two other candidates are also running against Stabenow.
