GRAND RAPIDS, Mich – After U.S. Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) announced he was not running for re-election in 2014, speculation was rampant as to who would fill his seat.
On the Democratic side, U.S. Representative Gary Peters announced his intentions to fill the seat.
When it comes to Republicans, several names have been mentioned, including Mike Rogers, Justin Amash, Terri Lynn Land, Rob Steele and Saul Anuzis.
On Tuesday, Rep. Amash (R-MI) posted a message to his followers on Facebook that might be hinting at a run:
We must begin to win statewide general elections for Senate and President. We need to stop catering to the political class elites and start caring about the rights and freedoms of regular people. More of the same means our party becomes irrelevant.
