We have reported on the mailers sent out and the Michigan Democrat Party taking advantage of the independent candidate Glenn Wilson’s position as spoiler in the MI CD1 race. In a somewhat interesting twist.. Independent spoiler candidate Glenn Wilson thanks the Democrats for spending PAC money on his behalf. The Wilson Campaign released this:
“The Glenn Wilson campaign would like to thank the Michigan Democratic Party for sending out the mailer regarding Wilson’s stance on irresponsible government Spending.”
Some things just write themselves..
From the same campaign that has elements giving grief to Dr. Dan Benishek for accepting Republican money (he IS the Republican candidate.. go figure) we find the Wilson campaign eagerly lapping up the spilled milk of the Michigan Donkeys in a last minute attempt to remain relevant. The Democrat attempt to split the vote’s cost? Estimated to be about $30,000.00 according to the Wilson Camp.
Consider it a gift.
But the Irony isn’t lost on this writer..
The Ivory Tower understands as does any critical thinker, that Wilsons foray into this race has made the ultimate end a toss up:
“But a conservative independent candidate is eating away at Benishek’s support — with some apparent help from a Democratic Party mailing. ”
“Benishek, a Crystal Falls surgeon who has never run for office, has a 42%-40% lead over state Rep. Gary McDowell of Rudyard. ”
“The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. “
They get it.
Oh.. but I did mention Irony didn’t I? From the very same article, a voter mentions WHY she will vote for Wilson (along with the projected other 8%):
“Debra King, 52, of Oscoda is a Republican backing Wilson.”He’s not as bad as the other two,” she said; his pledge not to take special-interest money resonated with her.”
Nothing special interest to see here folks.. Now move along.. Nothing special interest to see…
