Tag: Michigan's 76th House District
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
I'm pretty sure that I don't need to explain the scandal involved in Roy Schmidt's (literally) last minute party-switch in the 76th House District election this year, nor the fact that said scandal nearly cost him primary re-nomination. Of course, anyone wanting to know something that isn't posted on this site can always check out Christine Barry over on BFM. What I do want to talk about, however, is something that I mentioned briefly about two days after the primary, in that iCaucus Michigan would be getting involved in the general campaign in this district, and I'd like to tell you something about the guy they decided to endorse.

The iCaucus of Michigan was involved in eight races in Tuesday's Republican primary: The 6th Congressional District (Jack Hoogendyk endorsed over incumbent Fred Upton), the 11th Congressional District (Kerry Bentivolio endorsed over write-in candidate Nancy Cassis), the 74th House District (Rob VerHeulen endorsed over Steve Maas), the 104th House District (Jason Gillman recommended over incumbent Wayne Schmidt), and all four races in Plainfield Township, Kent County.
As a percentage of the involvement, the results were rather impressive.
