Inconsistent with values

Religious leaders of all denominations have spoken out against the Ryan-Romney budget as being inconsistent with their religion's core social-justice values — even candidate Ryan's.

Why have we not heard from local religious leaders?

Insight, understanding

As Michiganders we have previously failed to elect Senators who possess the will and ability to represent our state and our values.

I first met Pete Hoekstra in his D.C. office several years ago.

Just a small-business owner from Northern Michigan, yet Pete made time to meet personally after returning from a House Intelligence Committee meeting. Debbie Stabenow has never made time to meet and now refuses to debate Pete before the entire state.

Pete's insight and understanding left a mark I have never forgotten. Pete holds Michigan, our Constitution, and our concerns first.

Please support Pete Hoekstra for Senate.
