Hoekstra for Senate

Hoekstra for United States Senate
Yesterday, we took a significant step toward defeating Debbie Stabenow and her job-killing agenda.

We launched Grassroots Conservatives for Hoekstra; a group of Michigan conservatives who want to make sure that Pete Hoekstra is our next United States Senator and today we want you to join us.

During his time in Congress, Pete Hoekstra didn’t just talk about fiscal responsibility, he walked the talk, earning a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 90 out of 100. Citizens Against Government Waste, a non-partisan organization whose mission is to eliminate waste, mismanagement, and inefficiency in the federal government, named Pete Hoekstra “a taxpayer hero” in 2009, saying, “Rep. Hoekstra put the interests of taxpayers ahead of politics by consistently voting to cut wasteful spending, reduce the tax burden, and make government more accountable to taxpayers.”

That's not all though: Pete has always run his campaigns as a fiscal conservative, the candidate who is always able to do more with less. He won his first campaign riding his bicycle around his district meeting voters one at a time, and in his last campaign, he performed everyday jobs with everyday people.

We must stop Debbie Stabenow, and Pete Hoekstra is the only Republican who can do it. Stabenow is rated as the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate. She voted for ObamaCare and for higher taxes, and she's been in lockstep with President Obama every step of the way as he's driven us into a 14 trillion dollar debt. If grassroots conservatives like us get behind Pete Hoekstra right now, we can force Debbie Stabenow into retirement and deal a crushing blow to the Obama agenda.

One more thing: The Democrats only have a three-seat majority in the Senate. There is almost no way they can keep control of the Senate if they lose Debbie Stabenow. Control of the U.S. Senate is virtually in our hands. This is our chance to replace liberals like Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer with real leaders like Sens. Jim DeMint and Mike Lee. We hope you will consider doing three things:
