Union-Backed Democrat Loses Race To Dr. Dan Benishek (Again), Then Backtracks
Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek [MI-1] won his re-election race on Tuesday night against union-bought Democrat Gary McDowell by the slimmest of margins–2,297 votes, with 100% of the precincts counted. In fact, the unions’ candidate even congratulated ‘Dr. Dan’ [Benishek is a surgeon]. McDowell praised Benishek for winning the contest. “It was a great race. Congratulations to Dan Benishek. Hope he does well,” McDowell said this | Read More »
Dan Benishek: Of The People, By The People
We are getting down to the wire here and a candidate who can win needs our help. Dan Benishek is running in MI-1 for the seat that Bart Stupak is vacating. Y’all remember Bart Stupak, right? The man who proved that the myth of the Pro-Life Democrat is just that; a myth. He disgustingly sold out the unborn, after promising not to, and voted for | Read More »
He Doesn’t Hate Your Grandma, Really.

Dan Benishek (R CAND, MI-01) thanks… you.
He’s been certified – with a 15 vote margin; votes matter, folks – so (barring a final recount request from the Allen campaign) he’s the nominee.

Note To Jason Allen: There’s No *I* in “Team”
Jason Allen and Dan Benishek faced off in what proved to be a very tight GOP primary on August 3 for Michigan’s 1st Congressional District seat once occupied by Bart Stupak.

All Hands On Deck For Dan Benishek
Dan Benishek won last night’s primary in Michigan’s 1st Congressional District…by ONE vote. Yes folks, one vote… which proves that every vote does indeed count.

And, the | Read More »
Benishek For Congress
I haven’t written about Dan Benishek’s campaign for congress. He’s been on the front page several times doing it himself. Dan Benishek is in a fight against everything we oppose.

I’m glad to have the opportunity to further discuss it here. We all remember the 3 R’s from grade school, and we still need them; but I am going to tell you about a different group | Read More »
Michigan’s 1st District: An Awakening
We’ve been traveling this week. We’ve logged hundreds of miles and gone from town to town, meeting people of Main Street, America. I’ve talked to them in coffee shops, private homes, businesses, Republican dinners and Tea Party events. Everywhere I’ve gone, the people are speaking out and I am listening. I’ve been extremely impressed with how well-informed the people are. The topics we’ve discussed, the | Read More »
Dan Benishek: “Enough is Enough” Michigan’s 1st District
Leaving Behind 18 Years of Democratic Representation This past weekend, Americans For Prosperity sponsored the “Defending the American Dream” Summit. Hearing Sarah Palin, the keynote speaker for Conservatism, was of course the highlight.
