From Strategic National:
Pete Hoekstra seems to run the table in a Republican primary. Question is: after 18 years in the House, does he really want to go back to Washington?
Terri Lynn Land, although she comes in a distant second, could match up better against Stabenow in the general. She has statewide name ID and has been on the ballot twice.
Saul Anuzis has a disappointing showing, but is not someone voters might have thought of this early. You can't overlook his work ethic and connections.
Tim Leuliette, the former CEO of Dura Automotive. Will he be the next wealthy non-politician to run for statewide office? After what Rick Snyder accomplished in 2010, how could you count him out?
Public Policy Polling, and as reported in "Roll Call", the sitting senator is not nearly as popular as she was six years ago. She leads Hoekstra and Land by only a few points and is well below the magical 50% treshhold. Her unfavorables are as high as her favorables.
Looks like another thrill-packed election year is just around the corner. Now that the Super Bowl is over, its time to start evaluating the field, not just in the Major Leagues, but in realm of national politics as well.
