Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006


Early Start In Michigan Senate Contest

Minnesota is not the only state in the upper-Midwest where the battle lines are already being drawn for campaign '06.

Candice Miller, would be a formidable candidate against incumbent Senator Debbie Stabenow and is being strongly encouraged by the White House to consider a bid:

President George W. Bush smiled Friday when he introduced U.S. Rep. Candice Miller to a crowd at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts.

The audience roared its approval for the Harrison Township Republican as she stood and waved. "Sounds like they've heard of you," the president said.

By Friday afternoon, many may have heard the rumor that Bush came to Macomb County -- at least in part -- to tout Miller as a challenger to Michigan's Democratic junior senator, Debbie Stabenow, in 2006.
