To the Journal editor:
Gary Glenn, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, withdrew his name from the race July 19 due to lack of funds, but his name will remain on the ballot for the Aug. 7 Primary election.
Glenn is hoping voters will remember that he has withdrawn from the race and vote for Clark Durant instead.
Voters who have already voted via absentee ballot for Gary Glenn can vote a second time if they wish, by contacting their city or township clerk, "spoiling" their original ballot, and voting again.
The winner of the Tuesday's primary election will be on the Republican ballot against Democrat incumbent, Debbie Stabenow in November.
Durant has spent 20 years improving education in Detroit. He co-founded Cornerstone Schools in 1991 and has been working with the organization ever since, which boasts a 95 percent graduation rate in the midst of the failing Detroit Public School system.
We need Durant's vision, his private-sector solutions to public-sector problems, to re-imagine small business in Michigan just as he re-imagined education in Detroit.
Just this past week, Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of the prestigious Forbes Magazine, described Durant as "a principled and courageous conservative who understands freedom, free market, and sound money. He went on to say "His whole life demonstrates that he is a man who can solve tough problems and create opportunities for others."
Please vote for Clark Durant on Tuesday.
