    Actually, I don't know a lot about this guy David Trott.

    He's announced he will be challenging Kerry Bentivolio in the CD11 Republican primary.  He apparently believes he can serve the district and the country better than the current incumbent, and I'm OK with a challenge on who can be the better conservative.  I've said it before, I LIKE primaries.

    "Crazy thought for a staunch conservative, right? Perhaps. But not if one has had the philosophical disagreements still within the framework of that conservatism. Not if those disagreements extend into Republican governance. Not if any particular conservative part of the constituency still feels his or her best representation is not being made."
    I say "bring it on!"

    But Dave? Make sure you really have a reason, please.

    If you feel its just your turn Mr Trott?  Stay home.  If you feel that several hundred thousand dollars in Michigan political campaigns over the last several years has earned you the seat, I disagree.  If you think however, that Kerry Bentivolio's record of defending the constitution is lacking, and you can make a case for it, do it here.

    Avoid it if it is for your bucket list please.

    Mr. Trott has been on this poster's radar... (none / 0) (#1)

    ...for some time now.

    Ever since the CD-11 kakistocracy has had their collective backsides handed to them during the last election, they have been scrambling for someone "more mainstream" to run in the next election.

    It should also be noted that Mr. Trott also has a few skeletons in his closet.

    His political donations might not mean as much as Brooks & Co. would hope when some of them come to light.

    So, his/their choices are:

    a.) Come up with some very damning evidence of Rep. Bentivolio NOT adhering to the Constitution he swore to uphold along with his own party's stated platform.

    b.) Arrogantly continue forward while preparing for an even larger collective migraine than when their last star chamber chosen candidate got trounced.

    c.) Ditch this chip they have on their collective shoulder, think of their "family", and focus on other races where resources can be better spent for a change.
