MIDLAND DAILY NEWS: Republicans give back at auction

Jim Stamas for State Senate paid $325 the first time around, then gave Spangler’s duck back for resale, which brought in another $180 from Bay Mid Drywall.

Republican candidates were out in force on Wednesday as Gary Glenn for Representative, John Moolenaar for Congress and Roger Hauck for State Representative all purchased animals, but chose to give the animal back for resale. According to auction rules, the highest amount of the two bids goes to the seller. The lowest bid goes to the 4-H Small Animal Committee to improve the 4-H small animal exhibits.

Stamas purchased six animals, including a mini satin junior rabbit doe from Theoron Arno. Stamas said he has been trying to purchase one of Arno’s animals for three years and finally was successful.
