Gary Glenn will seek Senate seat
The Michigan president of the American Family Association says he's running for the Republican nomination
in the race to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Gary Glenn issued a statement Tuesday saying that federal election law requires him to file a formal declaration of candidacy this week.
In the statement, Glenn praises U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Cascade Township, the only Republican in Michigan's congressional delegation to vote against the debt ceiling bill that President Barack Obama signed Tuesday. Stabenow voted for the bill.
Tuesday also saw another prominent Republican say he won't join the U.S. Senate field. Ypsilanti cardiologist Rob Steele says his work is too demanding for a statewide race.
Ex-U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra recently declared his candidacy for the Republican Senate nomination.
