Jason Allen


 jason-allenFormer Sen. Jason ALLEN confirmed today he would be running for the 1st District congressional chair post within the Michigan Republican Party (MRP) at the request of incoming U.S. Rep. Jack BERGMAN.

Bergman defeated Allen in the three-way Republican primary last August. In the weeks that followed the race, however, Allen volunteered to assist Bergman at various events during the General Election, including the rally for then-Vice Presidential candidate Mike PENCE in Traverse City.

“I’ve enjoyed his openness and his team approach to our region,” Allen said of Bergman, who was formally sworn in today as a member of the 115th session of Congress.

Allen was a deputy director within the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs up until last year’s congressional run. Most recently, he’s been running the family’s men’s clothing store, Captain’s Quarters, in Traverse City.

CollageRetiring U.S. Rep. Dan Benishek is throwing his support behind state Sen. Tom Casperson to succeed him in Congress, just as Casperson is getting a challenger in the Republican primary against Benishek’s former rival.

Former state Sen. Jason Allen, R-Traverse City, on Thursday announced he’s joining the race for Benishek’s seat in the 1st Congressional District — the state’s largest encompassing most of northern Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula.

Allen, who lost a 2010 Republican primary to Benishek by 15 votes, signaled Thursday he would make Casperson’s past votes for raising taxes to pay for road repairs a contrast in the August GOP primary.

maxresdefaultRepublican National Committeeman Dave AGEMA would consider running in the 1st Congressional District being vacated next year by retiring U.S. Rep. Dan BENISHEK (R-Crystal Falls) if he feels there is adequate support and around $500,000 and $1 million in financial commitments.

Agema, a former state representative, lives in Grandville, which is in the 2nd Congressional District. However, since the Benishek announcement, Agema said he’s received numerous communications from northern Michigan and Upper Peninsula residents asking he run.
