Tag: 105th District
KEWADIN - A former state lawmaker from Northern Michigan and a current representative from Clinton and Gratiot counties have endorsed Greg MacMaster, Republican candidate for the 105th District House seat.
Former state Sen. Walter North of St. Ignace offered his endorsement on Tuesday after MacMaster discussed challenges facing the state with North, who also was executive chairman of the Mackinac Bridge Authority.
"I am extremely honored that Senator Walt North has endorsed my campaign." MacMaster said after the meeting. "I would be truly honored to continue his legacy in the Legislature and Northern Michigan."
The other endorsement from state Rep Paul Opsommer:
"In these tough economic times we need tough-minded representatives who can make the hard choices that will put Michigan back to work, and Greg is that person,"
"Representative Opsommer is a key Republican and is well respected in the Legislature," MacMaster stated. "I am looking forward to working with him in January after I am elected."

This is merely Five of several candidates running for the Michigan house 105th district. Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping Democrats from attending. These five are running for the seat to be vacated by Kevin Elsenheimer.

The videos below the fold.

We are in the midst of a series of crisis that calls for absolute understanding in the primary cycle where the conservatives and moderates stand. Never have we had to consider absolutes in such a way that a yes or no question was imperative as today.
YES or NO.. Taking a stand and committing to principle, instead of some wishy washy nuanced approach that is designed to maximize votes and not hurt any feelings. True conservative principle that has no room for an intrusive government. Our leaders need to be transparent in their core convictions, the part of them which drives their actions on our behalf.
They also need to be upstanding.
