“State Sen. Mike Kowall, the Senate majority floor leader, hopes to succeed” retiring Rep. Dave Trott (R) “joining a field of a half dozen candidates vying for the Republican nomination. … Kowall of White Lake Township said in a statement that residents of the 11th District want ‘someone who is ready to go toe-to-toe with the Washington establishment.’ He said his campaign will focus on creating ‘good-paying jobs and growing our regional economy.’”

“Last summer, Kowall was among the first declared candidates competing to replace term-limited Secretary of State Ruth Johnson. When Trott, a sophomore congressman, unexpectedly announced plans to retire in September, Kowall expressed interest in the seat.” (Detroit News)
