LANSING — It might be December, but this “doozy” of a race is only heating up as Michigan GOP Senate candidates continue to “clash” and take shots at each other. As the “caustic” and “aggressive” primary grows, candidates aren’t holding back.

  • Mike Rogers whacked Peter Meijer, James Craig, and Sandy Pensler, saying they’re running “for all the wrong reasons” and compared them to George Santos.
  • Rogers declared that none of his opponents were capable of the job, saying “nobody can walk into the United States Senate other than me.”

Michigan’s Big Show: Rogers: “I think people run for office for all the wrong reasons. Especially the legislative branch… You shouldn’t go there to be famous. And I think what happens when those folks go for the wrong reasons, they end up looking a lot more like George Santos than any statesman that you’ll see.”

CBS Detroit: Pensler: “And I think we’ve got a lot of career politicians and professional politicians who need the job and haven’t been facing the tough choices. And we’ve got a lot of problems because of that.” 

JR Morning Show: When asked about the other primary candidates and what makes him stand out, Pensler didn’t mince words: “…Professional politicians, and this is what’s happening, it’s part of our moral decline, don’t take on the tough issues because they’re afraid of losing their jobs.” 

WABC Radio: Rogers: “Nobody can walk into the United States Senate other than me, Mike Rogers…”
