Durant announces bid for Senate at Detroit school
Clark Durant has formally started his Republican campaign for U.S. Senate with a jab at the GOP front-runner and the Democrat he wants to replace.
Durant says fellow Republican Pete Hoekstra and Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow are to blame for the trillions in government debt. He says it's time to give them a "retirement party" and find them other work.
Durant has been a candidate for weeks but he made a public announcement Friday in front of hundreds of supporters at Cornerstone Schools in Detroit, which he co-founded in 1991. He spoke in Holland on Thursday, the hometown of Hoekstra, a former congressman.
Durant faces Hoekstra and others in the Republican primary next year. The winner takes on Stabenow.
