LANSING, Mich. (WZZM) - Michigan republicans Wednesday gathered to pledge their unity. Now that the primary is behind them, they say their only priority is to defeat democrats like U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow. Pete Hoekstra will face Stabenow after coming out ahead in Tuesday's voting.
"It was never about any of us individually - it was a shared vision about bringing America back and holding Debbie Stabenow and holding Barack Obama accountable for their performance," Hoekstra said.
Rep. Jase Bolger, the Michigan House Speaker, said the voters have spoken and put to rest questions about the election rigging he and Rep. Roy Schmidt were criticized for by the Kent County Prosecutor.
"The media's the only one asking me about this - the voters want to focus on issues the voters want to focus on jobs they want to focus on the future of their paycheck" Bolger said.
Mark Brewer, the Michigan Democratic Party chairman, said Bolger has no credibility left.
"This is one of the top elected officials in this state who according to the republican Kent County prosecutor engaged in an effort to defraud the voters of the 76th district," Brewer said.
