Today in campaign news: Koo-Koo Kerry up on the Vampire of Human Misery

*--According to a MIRS news Tweet, a poll in the 11th CD has Koo Koo Kerry Bentivolio up on David Trott, 33 percent to 21 with 46 percent undecided. Not earthshattering or even meaningful news, but kind of hilarious nonetheless.

*--David Knezak's campaign for state Senate says that he has been endorsed by Vote Vets.

*--MIRS is reporting that the Realtors PAC has endorsed Gary Peters.

*--The campaign of Bobbie McKenzie is reporting that the United Steelworkers District 2 has endorsed them.

I wonder when the MI-11 poll was taken
During the past two weeks, David Trott has run quite a few ads on Detroit TV stations, and his yard signs have popped up like dandelions in western Wayne County.

If Trott wins (and that's how I'd bet), I hope that whoever wins the Democratic primary caricatures him as a modern-day Snidely Whiplash who would tie Grandma to the train tracks because she fell behind on her mortgage.  

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Realtors PAC
They've given more or less pretty evenly over the years (click the link, then click on "Party Split By Cycle.")

That they're endorsing Peters at this stage tells us they're confident Peters is going to win.

Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

I think Knezek is the only one in that race with any endorsements to even speak of. Which is a little surprising since he is running against two sitting state reps. (Nathan and Stallworth) and a former state rep. (Shanelle Jackson).

He has a ton of labor endorsements listed on his website as well as the Mayors of Garden City and Dearborn Heights and the Supervisor of Redford. In addition to Glenn Anderson's endorsement and that of Commissioners Leblanc and Webb from that district.
