In a poll released this week, Senator Mike Bishop was the only candidate who chalked up a decisive victory in a hypothetical General Election match-up against newly announced Democratic Attorney General candidate Gretchen Whitmer.
Bishop also led opponent Bill Schuette amongst those that identified themselves as Republicans, as well as those identified as Independents.
"Republicans need to nominate the strongest possible candidate in 2010 if it wants to elect a GOP attorney general. Mike Bishop begins the race with a 10% lead over a woman Democrat, while Bill Schuette is only tied with her," Steve Mitchell said recently regarding the results. "In a close race, having the lead Bishop has right now could be the difference between winning and losing next year."

We have some good news in the 9th District. Rocky Raczkowski is running against Gary Peters. Rocky's a good candidate who has a history of winning tough races. He won three times in Farmington Hills against democrats in a democrat leaning district won by Gore, Kerry, and Obama. He even beat Aldo Vagnozzi, who later won the district three times himself.
I was at the Rocky announcement yesterday in Oakland County. The turnout surprised me. I saw roughly 250 people there, on a Saturday morning, less than an hour before a football game. A lot of the people I talked to there wern't the people I normally see at Oakland County political events. I'm more familiar with NORC, but a lot of people there are just now getting politically active. They are unhappy with the job Washington is doing, including Gary Peters, who supports retroactive tax increases, stimulus packages that only help government, bailouts, cap and trade, and the governmental health care takeover.

I just received Rick Snyder's email message.
For the governor candidate with the most staff and biggest operation, he really should find someone more clever to write his emails.
