Last month we took note of reports that anti-gay activist Gary Glenn of the American Family Association of Michigan was considering running as a Republican challenger to incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Now Glenn has made it official that he will seeking the GOP nomination:
The Michigan leader of the conservative American Family Association announced Tuesday that he is running for the Republican nomination in the race to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, while another prominent GOP figure withdrew his name from consideration.
Gary Glenn, the association’s state president, said federal election law requires him to file a formal declaration of candidacy this week because he has raised more than $5,000 and launched a campaign website. The Tupelo, Miss.-based association is a strong force on the Christian right and has been active in fighting gay marriage, adoption by gay couples and individuals, and sexually oriented material.
You can see Glenn’s campaign website here.
I wonder how long it will be before Glenn receives Mike Huckabee’s endorsement given that Huckabee believes that “if we had leaders like Gary Glenn across America, our work wouldn’t be so hard.”
