The Jack is out
State Rep. Jack Hoogendyk (R-61, West Kalamazoo county) has withdrawn from the race for governor and endorsed Dick DeVos. It seems like he'll be the candidate, note the comments from his lone remaining opponent in this article. Dick is an interesting candidate, but he has way too much baggage. He might be a winner in Florida, but unless he's willing to spend 100 mill on this race, he doesn't stand a change. Granholm dodged a bullet. This is the contest that Brewer was hoping for, and now that the race is more or less set in stone, he hasn't wasted any time in defining DeVos. I've never met Mark, but after reading about the forture cookie stunt, he seems like a much funnier guy.
