Detroit News: Engler: Durant should let Hoekstra be GOP's candidate to challenge Stabenow

The Detroit News reports on infighting amongst Michigan Republicans on the senate race:

Former Michigan Gov. John Engler said Wednesday he believes Detroit charter school founder Clark Durant should stay out of the U.S. Senate race, leaving the road clear for former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra to win the GOP nomination and challenge two-term Sen. Debbie Stabenow.

Engler, appearing on the statewide Michigan Talk Network with radio and TV host Michael Patrick Shiels, made the comments when Shiels asked him if he planned to make an endorsement, according to a transcript released by the show’s producer.

“I’m just hopeful that Clark decides he will stay with education and let Pete (Hoekstra) be the candidate,” Engler said on the program.
