Sandler Discusses Michigan US Senate GOP Primary in Detroit Free Press

"Clark is trying to change the dynamic of the race. The question is, can he change the dynamic with the time he has left?" said Stu Sandler, a Republican consultant who managed former state Attorney General Mike Cox's gubernatorial campaign in a 2010 race that featured Hoekstra as well.

Decider Strategies' Stu Sandler Featured in MLive

MLive asked Decider Strategies Stu Sandler about the upcoming Michigan US Senate GOP primary.

“Clark Durant really has his work cut out for him,” said Stu Sandler, a political consultant who runs Decider Strategies. “You never say never in politics – and there have been people who make significant gains in the final weeks – but it’s a difficult task.  With under three weeks left, you’ve got to make a whole lot of noise to change things.”
Sandler noted Glenn’s group of activists, about 50 tea party groups that helped him to turn 27,000 nominating petition, has the power to turn the tide. But the margin may be too wide, he said.

Campaigns and Elections: How Republicans Should Talk About the Auto Bailout by Stu Sandler

There’s a misconception that Republicans coldly told Detroit to go bankrupt. That’s completely untrue. Republicans were supportive of a restructuring. Today, the auto industry has improved in Michigan. Republicans and Democrats alike understood that the industry needed restructuring. But Obama taking credit for the auto turnaround offends the hard work of the employees of Chrysler, General Motors, and Ford for that matter.

The president was not the CEO of General Motors or Chrysler. He didn’t work on the line. He didn’t discuss changing the marketing or supply-chain. It’s offensive for Obama and his administration to take credit for all the hard work and all the difficult decisions people in the auto industry made. Autoworkers have their pride.

Detroit News Talks to Sandler about Post-Primary Results

The former Massachusetts governor got 50 percent of the vote in Oakland, the largest Republican county in the state, while former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum received only 29 percent, his lowest percentage in the state.
"I think he was really able to drive up (the numbers in) some of the suburban communities," said Stu Sandler, a Republican strategist and consultant. "In Oakland, his numbers were incredible."

Stu Sandler Talks to Campaigns and Elections about the MI Presidential Primary

Stu Sandler, a consultant for the state Republican Party, agrees it'll be a tight result. "It seems like Santorum's cutting into Romney's lead in Oakland [County], but it seems like Romney's cutting into Santorum's lead in Kent [County]," says Sandler. "They've both run good campaigns."
Given Romney's deep roots in Michigan and his status as the frontrunner, a close vote on Tuesday will hand Santorum, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich a mandate to carry on, at least, through Super Tuesday.

Detroit News Discusses Romney's Defense of Auto Bailout with Sandler

Republican consultant Stu Sandler said Romney, as a Michigan native who grew up around the auto industry culture, simply argues there was a different way to manage the bailout that could have been successful. Sandler said it's a powerful message that will resonate with voters in the coming two weeks before the primary election.
"Something Romney pointed out is 'I'm from Michigan, I understand the auto industry, and I only want it to succeed,' and I think that's something that's been mischaracterized," Sandler said.

"If you are a candidate who is trying to pick off support (from Romney) the first thing you would do is look outside southeast Michigan, one for cost and two for competitiveness," Sandler said.

Detroit News: Michigan GOP Watches, Waits its Turn

In a little under two months, Michigan could further add focus to the campaign. It will be the first big Midwestern industrial state to hold a primary. A victory in Michigan could be a springboard for a candidate heading into the 10-state Super Tuesday battle a week later.
"It could show a candidate with a lot of strength," GOP consultant Stu Sandler said. "What this comes down to is who has the organization to capitalize on Super Tuesday."
