VIDEO: Foreclosure vulture David Trott and Democrat Bobby McKenzie throw down on WDIV’s Flashpoint + Trott protests planned
Yesterday, WDIV-TV aired segment featuring a debate of sorts between Republican Foreclosure vulture David Trott and his MI-11 Democratic opponent Bobby McKenzie. It was a contentious debate and I’m told a number of f-bombs were tossed during the commercial break and afterwards.
McKenzie repeatedly hammered Trott on his foreclosure activities that tossed 80,000 people out of their homes in one year. Trott doubled down on his position that Obamacare has to be repealed and replaced and on his opposition to marriage equality.
Trott refused to call McKenzie by his proper first name, repeatedly calling him “Bob” throughout the debate.

David Trott pours another $1 million made from Michigan foreclosures into his campaign to buy a Congressional seat

In the past couple of days both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee (RSCC) have pulled campaign ad buys out of Michigan.

Kerry Bentivolio, the incumbent Republican Congressman in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District has formally announced his intention to run as a write-in candidate in the November election.

INTERVIEW: Bobby McKenzie – “Trott is a guy who has made foreclosing & evicting people as efficient as possible”
The election to replace Kerry Bentovolio in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, one of the most absurdly gerrymandered districts in our state, has been one of the most interesting races in the state this election cycle. Multi-millionaire “Foreclosure King” David Trott massively outspent Bentivolio to win the Republican primary. On the Democratic side, Bobby McKenzie, a former Senior Advisor in the […]Read more ›
