Tag: Michigan's 5th Congressional District
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Because of the principled approach to vetting and endorsing candidates, the tea party networks in several states (including in Michigan) voluntarily operate in strategic partnership with the Independence Caucus organization in their state. It's a group of concerned citizens devoted to electing candidates truly committed to constitutional loyalty and fiscal responsibility, regardless of party, whose goal is the election of such candidates to not less than 40% of the available seats in the several state legislatures and both chambers of Congress . . . in each election year. The iCaucus concerns itself with candidate screening, endorsement, and advocacy, with a specific focus on constitutional loyalty and grassroots activism, and on integrity over money, which makes it a unique organization in contemporary politics.

Back in July of this year, when 18-term U. S. Representative Dale Kildee (D-Flint) announced that he would not seek a 19th term, the predictable herd of jackasses started jockeying for position in whatever's going to pass for a Democrat Primary in Michigan's 5th Congressional District. And with the John Kupiec (Kildee's 2010 challenger) not sure if he's going to run again, and Rick Wilson (Kupiec's 2010 primary challenger) currently mulling over a potential U. S. Senate run, we're sort of left wondering what sacrificial lamb the MIGOP might find to show up on the 2012 ballot for this seat.
And that, ladies and gents, is where we go below the fold.
