Hoogendyk Files Papers for Senate Race

Lansing, MI- Current State Representative Jack Hoogendyk is filing papers tomorrow morning to become a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, in the race against 30 year incumbent Democrat Carl Levin.

Hoogendyk has rallied the support of many of the party leadership and county chairs, gathering their endorsements and raising money in anticipation for a significant campaign against Levin.

"I'm glad that Carl Levin has raised $5 million dollars in anticipation for this race," said Representative Hoogendyk.  "He's short, he'll need twice as much to win.  I'm also glad to see there's no chance the bank will foreclose on Carl's campaign office, I just wish I could say the same for working families in Wayne county, and of course the rest of the state.  Everyone I speak to is struggling to make ends meet in this state, I guess Carl managed to make friends with all the millionaires."

Jack Hoogendyk has been a state representative in district 61 from Texas Township since 2003.  Jack has never voted for a tax-increase.  Jack has previously worked in sales and non-profit management.

Jack has been married to Erin for 32 years, and together they have 5 children and 7 grandchildren.  In their spare time, Jack and Erin have been involved with Alternatives, a Kalamazoo clinic that serves pregnant women in need.
