Levin, Hoogendyk advance U.S. Senate campaigns
(2008-05-12)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Republican Jack Hoogendyk is unlikely to
face an opponent in Michigan's U.S. Senate race until he runs into
longtime incumbent Democrat Carl Levin in November.
Levin and Hoogendyk each submitted signatures Monday to run for
the Senate.
Tuesday is the deadline for candidates to turn in signatures to
get on the primary ballot. It's looking unlikely that Levin or
Hoogendyk will face an opponent in the Aug. 5 election.
Hoogendyk said Monday it will be tough to defeat Levin, but it
can be done. The Kalamazoo lawmaker is finishing his third two-year
term in the state House.
Levin, of Detroit, was first elected to the Senate in 1978. He
chairs the Senate's Armed Services Committee and is running for a
sixth six-year term.
