U.S. Rep.’s Sole Focus Is Finishing His Term and Aiding His Requested Attorney General Probe“I have ended my write-in campaign in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District,” announced McCotter.“One can’t clean up a mess multitasking. Honoring my promise to the sovereign people of our community only allows me to finish the official duties of my present Congressional term; and aid the State Attorney General criminal investigation that I requested into identifying the person or persons who concocted the fraudulent petitions that have cost me so dearly.“Honoring this promise does not allow me to continue a political write-in campaign. This decision is final, regardless of how swiftly the investigation is concluded.”“To those who unhappy at this news, I’m sorry; to those happy at this news, you’re welcome,” McCotter concluded.
I think it's time for us to now get behind a candidate, and for the party apparatuses to stay neutral. That candidate is Kerry Bentivolio. Bentivolio got the signatures to be on the ballot. Write-in campaigns for congress rarely succeed. Bentivolio is the very likely nominee. Many pundits are thinking that someone else wouldn't likely win as a write-in, but keep in mind that it takes at least 25-30K write-ins just to have a ghost of a chance. At minimum, if you want to back someone as a write-in, don't damage Bentivolio to where the dems have a good shot to win.
