Glenn officially files for state Senate seat

GG_at_SOS.jpgLansing, Mich. -- Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Williams Twp., chairman of the House Energy Policy Committee and Associate Speaker Pro Tem of the state House of Representatives, visited the Secretary of State's office in Lansing Tuesday to officially file as a candidate in the Republican primary this August for the state Senate seat representing Bay, Lapeer, and Tuscola counties. The seat is currently held by term-limited state Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville, who is supporting Glenn's candidacy.

"Republican primary voters want and deserve a state Senate candidate they can trust to protect our 2nd Amendment rights and vote to cut taxes, not raise them," Glenn said Tuesday. "I'm the only candidate in this Republican primary with a strong record of support for law-abiding gun owners' rights and of voting against increasing the tax burden on Michigan families and seniors."

Glenn is in his second term in the House representing portions of Bay and Midland counties.

He will face former state Rep. Kevin Daley, R-Lum, in the Republican primary.
