Kerry is the man to bring fiscal sanity and responsible spending while reigning in the debt. He has got my vote this time around. New blood never hurts because these newbies want to do the right thing for us and are not complacent .

The Republican Party needs to be punished for what Thaddeus Mccotter has done for the past 10 years and the rest of the republican candidates for a special election costing tax payers $650,000. The last thing this district needs is someone like Kerry Bentivoli; Bankrupt businessman, student abusing failed/fired teacher, conspiracy theorist introvert. Kerry has proven that he cannot represent himself, by hiding from allegations leveled against him by the press. If Kerry cannot stand up for himself how is he going to stand up for the 11th district voters? The 11th has suffered at the hands of Thadd, I am so great I want to be president, do we really need Kerry, I don’t like to meet people but I want to represent them Bentivoli.

Thanks DCC for the explanation of where the fault for the special primary election lays! Also too bad McCotter left his term early leaving this mess. I take it nothing of importance is happening in the old 11th district now anyway, it's a lame duck all around, should have been left that way from November to December though I realize the constitution prohibits that. Yes, re the new 11th district. I am in it now and can't believe that I no longer share the same district with nearby cities BUT am in the new district with Milford and Canton Township, thirty miles away and in a different county, something peculiar about that.
