Former GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain has made it official, throwing his support behind the Senate candidacy of former Michigan Rep. Pete Hoekstra.

“I feel called to publicly support true patriots that have the right stuff for the job of saving our country,” Cain said in his formal endorsement. “I’ve found one in Michigan that you should know about. Pete Hoekstra is committed to solving the great challenge of our day- the rising federal debt resulting from the growth of government.

“He's the best chance for Michiganders to play their part in this important fight. That's why I am supporting Pete Hoekstra and why I am asking you to join me today.”

Cain recently did a four-city swing across Michigan with Hoekstra, who gave up his House seat to make an unsuccessful run for governor. Hoekstra has held a steady lead in the polls over Republican challengers but has trailed incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.

Cain noted that as “one of the first supporters of my 9-9-9 economic growth and jobs plan, Pete Hoekstra has shown he is not afraid of bold solutions to fix what is broken in America.”

“The election cycle has already become very heated and Pete has become the focus of Democrats’ ire,” Cain added. “That's because the Democrat machine most fears Pete. With the help of the liberal media, they have already shifted into high gear and are doing their best to convince concerned folks like you that big-spending liberals like Debbie Spend-It-Now are the answer.

“All is not lost though. We can bring those inspiring and monumental days back and make them a reality again by doing what is right for America, starting by supporting conservative candidates for federal office like Pete Hoekstra of Michigan.”
