For one, she a republican and she an extrememly uphill battle. Two, if Hoekstra runs, he would beat her in the primaries, she has no federal experience. Look at what she has done with license plates, how many different varieties are there now? One hundred? You cant even tell if someone is from michigan unless you look very close. Good luck to her but she just might stay in the position she has now instead of being unemployed!

Why not, look what she has done for the sec state offices. Business as usual,long lines,an abnormaly large amount of hispanics who can't speak english,and a staff who obviously would rather be some where else than at work.
Hey, sounds like a great thing for michigan.

Even more reason to move. I'd like to know who first pushed the handle to flush this state.

She can't stay in her current position since her term limit is up in 2010.

Terri Lynn Land has done a terrific job as Secretary of State. It's unfortunate when a truly dedicated and talented elected official is forced to leave a position they are so good at, because of term limits.

Whether it's modernizing and making government agencies more efficient (Land), holding government and special interests accountable (Cox) or championing a balanced budget (Hoekstra), it appears there may be no shortage of solid candidates for Governor. When the time to choose who to support finally comes, let's hope the Parties and Voters select the best qualified person to lead Michigan into a brighter future!

Takes money nowadays to become an elected official with all those yard signs, and clout to get media exposure. Not like the days of ole honest Abe. But now it's more like Trump. Sad indeed.

In about 6 years you may see Kevin Green running for Senator or governor. I still can remember a friend of the Vorhees family telling me 10 years ago how the rich were grooming this young kid (Kevin Green) for governor someday, and that was before he was even involved in City government. Funny how things work out when you know the right people with power.

There is not much that Terri Lynn Land is good at when it comes to running an organization. When she was the Kent County Clerk/Register of Deeds she so screwed up the Register of Deeds office that outside help from New York had to come in and straighten it out. She is, in a word, incompetent.

Fortunately, for her, being elected to any state office requires very little skill as most things run on their own via the professionals hired to run the show.

To think of her as a governor is something right out of Mad Magazine.

Their plans don't always work out for them though. Remember Dave Dishaw? He was chosen for a little "grooming". He couldn't get elected though.

You're crazy. She is a bitter, rude person and a slumlord to boot. She is sure to lose.
