Michigan Democratic Sen. Carl Levin announced Thursday he will retire at the end of 2014.

Michigan is a prime state to pick up a seat. Rep. Gov., and state Congress.
Time to get a Conservative up front. Anyone know of a Ted Cruz clone we can line up for the job before the Rove Rinos step in?

Hopefully, we can nominate someone who will run a better campaign than Pete Hoekstra did last year.

“There has been speculation about a bid by Justin Amash, the libertarian Republican representing the state’s third congressional district. Senate Conservatives Fund executive director Matt Hoskins said Amash “has an impressive record and we’d love to see him run,” although he also stressed that the Fund had made no decision on who to endorse, but wanted to see strong conservatives in the race.”

If you're ever elected to the Senate, you are supposed to die in the Senate.

Senator Levin must have missed the memo.

Having said that..........fine with me.

GOOD! This old KGB dupe should have been jailed 30+ years ago for his despicable performance in giving the key to the city of Detroit to a KGB “World Peace Council” delegation who came there in 1975.

Also greeting these reds were City Council members and future Council heads, comrade Maryann Mahaffey and Erma Henderson.

They, along with lifelong Communist Party member/Mayor Coleman Young, were the key people responsible for bringing Detroit down to cesspool level. All were reds.

Sen. Levin’s brother, Sander, is just a fool but he’s in Congress which makes him a dangerous fool.

I think our strongest candidate would be Congresswoman (and former Secretary of State) Candice Miller.

If none of the first-tier candidates run, maybe it’s time to give Rev. Keith Butler a chance—he got a raw deal in 2006.

And if Paultard Justin Amash runs, I’ll support whoever runs against him.
