Republican Joe Schwarz to announce run as a Democrat in Michigan’s 7th district tomorrow


We’ve sunk THIS low???

The Michigan Democratic Party has been busy recruiting a candidate to run against Tim Walberg in the 7th District where I live. However, as I reported back in March and others have reported since then, they aren’t recruiting Democrats, they are recruiting Joe Schwarz. A Republican.

I’m not kidding.

There is no question that Schwarz despises Walberg. Walberg beat him in the 2006 Republican primary with the help of the far-right money machine Americans for Prosperity. He’s still a Republican.

It’s a sad statement about the state of the Michigan Democratic Party that they have sunk to recruiting Republicans to run on their behalf. There are probably zero important votes that Schwarz would vote differently than Walberg so I can’t think of a single reason to support him.

I’m told that Schwarz will make his announcement tomorrow (Monday, April 23rd.) If he announces as a Democrat, this will make us the laughing stock of the entire country.
