Epstein released the following statement:
“The voters of Michigan are looking for a political outsider – a business leader and job creator. I am taking the fight directly to Debbie Stabenow.
As a future United States Senator serving on behalf of all Michigan residents, I will repeal Obamacare, defend President Trump’s America First policies, and support proposals that will rebuild the American middle class.
LANSING — The abrupt announcement that Congressman Dan Benishek will not seek re-election has shocked local government.
The seat, which has been held by Benishek since 2011, is wide open. While he hasn’t officially announced running for the vacant position yet, State Senator Tom Casperson spoke with TV6 and says he’s seriously considering it.
“I haven’t even had time to sit down and talk about it with my wife,” said Casperson. “That’s why when people ask, I’ve had to be reluctant to say anything straight forward about it. Clearly, it’s something we’ve talked about in the past. We’re just going to wait a day or so.”
