Hol­land May­or Kurt Dyk­stra (R) will not run, re­leas­ing a state­ment say­ing that the “cost and im­pact on the party could di­min­ish our chance to achieve the goal: win­ning the U.S. Sen­ate.” Mean­while, phys­i­cian Rob Steele (R) emailed sup­port­ers, say­ing he will “not make any de­cision to run lightly.”

With Dyk­stra the latest Re­pub­lic­an to pass on the race, we’re still wait­ing for a few: Oak­land County Dis­trict Court Judge Kim Small (R) still has yet to make a de­cision, and Rep. Justin Amash (R) hasn’t of­fi­cially ruled out a run.

POLLING NEWS. A new Mitchell Re­search and Com­mu­nic­a­tions (R) (IVR) poll (Aug. 26; 1,881 LVs, +/-2.2%) shows former Sec­ret­ary of State Terri Lynn (R) beat­ing Rep. Gary Peters (D), 39-36%. (MLive.com)
