And no, I'm not talking about Randy Richardville, though I agree that he needs to go, too. Nope, I'm referring to a different scoundrel here.
Last Sunday, on the Dump Saul Anuzis facebook page, I wrote:
"While all of this various and sundry political talk is very fascinating, let's please keep our primary objective in mind . . . that of dumping Saul Anuzis as Michigan's RNC National Committeeman. We do need to start recruiting a potential challenger, and develop a delegate strategy (using the 2010 pool) to accumulate the votes necessary to dump him."
The conversation threads, both on the page and in the group, were starting to get a tad afield of the original purpose, which is to focus the efforts to replace Saulius Anuzis as Michigan's Republican National Committeeman. Best to stay focused here, as we only have about seven weeks left to work with. Grab a pot of coffee, and let's go below the fold.

Dr. Daniel Benishek is running a positive campaign for U.S. Congress in Michigan's First District. He gained national attention within hours of Bart Stupak's press conference on March 21st, 2010, when he announced he would vote for the health care bill. It was widely accepted that Stupak had betrayed his conservative district with his decision to vote for the Health Care Bill. Radio talk-show host Mark Levin had Dan on his radio program the next day, supporting him over Stupak. A flurry of television and radio appearances followed, including Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto. With help from the grass roots and the Tea Party Express, Stupak made a decision not to run for re-election. In a 6-way race for the primary, Benishek won the district with just 15 votes ahead of long-time State Senator for part of the district, Jason Allen. Allen made a decision not to ask for a recount, and Benishek would move on to face a Democrat challenger, Gary McDowell and three other candidates. Below is a list of important names and endorsements of Daniel Benishek M.D.

April 17, 201 there was a meet the people candidate's forum at the Mill Creek elementary school.
This is merely two of several candidates running for the 1st US Congressional district. Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping republican candidate Benishek, and two Democrats (that we know of) from attending. These two are running for the seat to be vacated by Bart Stupak, who seeing the writing on the wall for his political career, decided to make it possible for other Democrats to pick up the seat.
The sound could be better, and as with some of the videos taken at the event, I could not compress without losing content, so they are broken into two parts.
The Two US Congressional Candidates from the Forum below the fold.
