Stabenow would certainly be the strongest candidate for the Dems. Cherry is not well known and is not charismatic, though this being Michigan, still has at least even odds of winning the general.

Land would be the GOP's best candidate, though Cox would be formidable too. Hoekstra would certainly be the weakest of the major contenders; he'd get killed in metro Detroit.

Hoekstra will win. Michigan had to deal with one retarded Governor , Don't think they'll vote in more retards.


Hoekstra for Governor of Michigan!!! (The state I will live in to attend Uni of Mich)

Since Hoekstra is essentially an Engler clone, I don't see how this supports your argument.

The "blame Democrats for Michigan's bad economy" schtick didn't work in 2006 or 2008.  Voters here seem to understand pretty well that larger forces uncontrollable by the state government are responsible.

Maybe 2010 will be different.....of course a lot depends on whether the economy is improving by then or not. Be patient. Smiley
