Huckabee Picks An Underdog in Michigan Senate Race

If you guessed Clark Durant, you'd be mistaken. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has endorsed conservative activist Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan and a major underdog in the Republican primary.

"He has boldly led on issues of life, traditional marriage, and the Fair Tax. When I needed help in Michigan in 2008, Gary didn't wait until it was convenient or popular, he stood with me out of sheer courage of his views," Huckabee said in a statement issued through his political action committee.

It could be a boost for former Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra in the GOP primary if, as Daily Kos Elections points out, Glenn gets any traction and is able to eat into any of Durant's conservative support. But that's a big if.
