I really wouldn't mind a Milliken style moderate Republican but honestly I have a very difficult time trusting anything GOP associated right now. Between the violence of national politics and the idiocy I see coming from Bishop in Lansing I think it's going to take time and a lot of hard work to win me back.

Yes, it'd take me quite a bit to get beyond the label he's chosen, and the group he's chosen to associated him with, but then you look at Dillon (who's a complete failure as far as I'm concerned and that health care restructuring he recently released leaves much to be desired) and what the Michigan Dems are still putting forward after all of these years (more lackluster candidates) it makes me more prepared to stomach someone like a Snyder.

And, if it take voting Snyder to keep out the likes of Cox & Co., I'll bite the bullet, for sure. I'm already thinking strategically about this. At least for me, Snyder has instantly placed himself as a front-runner in my book. It's really rather unfortunate that he's going to have to spend a butt-load of money just so people know who he is.

the surge might have something to do with Peety Hoksaws ties to the DeVos/Prince/Blackwater/Amway corruption.

Snyder can probably thank the dems who crossed over.

I crossed over and voted against Hoekstra by casting a vote for Snyder.

Hoekstra's creepy alliance with Texas history revisionists and christian supremacists, the "Wallbuilders" cult made him totally unacceptable.

Obviously you are not from around here. The Devos family ditched Hoekstra and endorsed and financed Cox.
