A Blog Dedicated to Ridding the RNC/GOP of Progressive, Liberal RINOs

What happens when the only candidate for a congressional seat that met the requirements to be on the primary ballot isn’t the choice of the establishment GOP? Well, you hold a secret meeting and pick another one, for the people, of course! This is what happened in Michigan’s 11th district. U.S. Rep. Thad McCotter is retiring after serving 5 terms. Well, actually he’s retiring after coming up with 1,833 signatures (requirement is 1,000), but only 244 were allowed.

The only candidate meeting the signature requirements to be placed on the GOP ballet for the Michigan primary, Aug 7th, is Kerry Bentivolio. Kerry, supported by TEA Party’ers, is a high school teacher and gentleman farmer (reindeer and chickens) from Milford, a veteran of the Vietnam and Iraq wars and a Ron Paul enthusiast. Oops!  Red flags just went up in the MIGOP.

About 25 Wayne and Oakland County GOP leaders and elected officials huddled Wednesday (June 6th) at the Suburban Collection Showplace to coalesce around one candidate. About 11 members reunited Thursday at a hotel to interview the possible write-in candidates the party could get behind, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said.

“She really knocked the ball out of the park,” Patterson said of Cassis. The vote to back Cassis was unanimous.

“While there is an individual on the ballot, the people deserve a choice, and that shouldn’t be an accidental choice,” Cassis said.
