Stu Sandler Discusses Michigan US Senate 2014 Race and Levin retirement in Detroit Free Press

Decider Strategies CEO Stu Sandler discussed the US Senate Race in the Detroit Free Press:

GOP insiders pointed to members of the state’s congressional delegation, including U.S. Reps. Candice Miller of Harrison Township; Mike Rogers of Brighton; Dave Camp of Midland; Fred Upton of St. Joseph; and Justin Amash of Cascade Township, as potential candidates.

 Other names mentioned by Republicans include Lt. Gov. Brian Calley; Attorney General Bill Schuette; former Gov. John Engler; metro Detroit charter school founder Clark Durant, who sought the U.S. Senate nomination in 2010, and west Michigan billionaire Dick DeVos, who was the GOP candidate for governor in 2006. State Sen. Roger Kahn, R-Saginaw Township, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has expressed interest, as well.

Republican consultant Stu Sandler described the Levin retirement as “a once in a 30-year opportunity.” He noted 2014 will be a non-presidential year and said he expects the GOP will have “a very strong ticket” headed by Gov. Rick Snyder. To read the entire article, go to:
