  •  Good Timing (0+ / 0-)

    I think Hoekstra has good timing. Every state  office will be up for grabs.  The 2010 election will be critical for Michigan Dems.  We will hold the lower house and should have a decent chance at claiming the Senate.  That new legislature will redistrict the state after the 2010 census takes away one if not more of our seats in Congress.  The outer counties in Hoekstra's district and in Dave Camp's 4th district are likely to be moved northward into Bart Stupak's safe D district. Perhaps the 4th District will be made to disappear and take out Dave Camp too.  Some kind words for John Cherry -- a wonderful man who really cares about everyone in this state.  If he lacks connections to the Detroit metro area, that won't matter.
