Independent in Michigan's First District Colludes with Michigan Democratic Party to Damage Benishek.
Is Glenn Wilson a man of integrity?
Last night, at the weekly meeting of the Petoskey Tea Party, the question was raised, "Will Glenn Wilson step out of the race on October 1st like he promised he would?"
Wilson, running as an independent candidate in Michigan's First District Congressional race, told the members of the Petoskey Tea Party that he would drop out of the race on October 1st if it was clear all he was accomplishing was taking votes away from the Republican. His promise was given when concerns were raised about his candidacy splitting the conservative vote and allowing the Democrat to take the seat.
Prior to the date of the primary, Wilson was introduced to the Petoskey Tea Party group, by then president of the group, Rich Carlson. Many of the members of the group were concerned by the fact that Wilson espoused many of the beliefs of the Republican Party, and wondered why Wilson did not duke it out in the primary like the rest. Wilson told the group, unequivocally, that if Jason Allen, a moderate Republican, did not win the primary, that he would pull out of the race. He clarified his pledge further, by saying that if by October 1st he had no real chance of winning, and he was hurting the chances of taking the seat away from the Democratic party, that he would drop out. "The tea party cannot support the Democratic party, and it is our job to get rid of RINO's," one tea partier said. Some mounting anger was felt at last night's meeting, considering that Wilson's campaign manager is Rich Carlson, and new revelations show collusion between the Wilson campaign and the Democratic Party in the latest smear against Dr. Dan Benishek.
