  •  MI-Sen: Dykstra (R) Declines to Run (8+ / 0-)

    Looks like the GOP is struck with Terri Lynn Land:

    — BREAKING: Kurt Dykstra will not run for U.S. Senate. In a release put out this morning, Dykstra said after considering a bid to replace U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, he decided against it because the "cost and impact on the party could diminish our chance to achieve the goal: winning the U.S. Senate."

    Last month, Dykstra said he was still considering running for Senate after U.S. Rep Dave Camp said he was not going to seek the seat.

    I was actually kind of worried about Dykstra.  While he is "Some Dude" he's a Some Dude I feel that could actually become a formidable candidate.  I guess all those photo-ops with the prez when he came to Holland, though, couldn't have helped. lol

    BTW, there is also a trash poll in that article from horrible pollster Mitchell research that has Land leading Peters 39/36 and with an even more laughable match-up showing the completely unknown Dykstra leading Peters 37/36.  I almost didn't even mention it given how ridiculous it is, but I thought you guys show know. lol  I don't know why Michigan has shut sh%tty local pollsters.  Even the most professional of the locals, EPIC, isn't all that great.
