Durant says Washington needs "ordinary citizens"
The latest Republican candidate to challenge U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow says it’s time for regular citizens – like him -- to get into politics. Clark Durant says he’s running for office because he’s tired of government getting in the way of citizens trying to build their dreams.
"I tremble for my country," Durant says. "Our government is overspending, has grown too fast and taxes too much. Ordinary people are having a hard time putting bread on the table and making ends meet, and our government is extravagant.”
Durant says there’s a danger of inflation unless the U.S. stops expanding its money supply.
