    Pete Hoekstra never had a reasonable shot at Debbie Stabenow's seat. He's not well liked outside his socially conservative western Michigan area. He lost the last gubernatorial primary to Rick Snyder -- a political neophyte. He's run for statewide offices before, and he simply doesn't have any traction outside his home area. He's a social conservative, and that doesn't play well anywhere but the southwest corner of the state and a small area in the Upper Peninsula.

    Wealth doesn't trickle down -- it rises up.
