BYRON CENTER, MI (WHTC) - In an effort to give her campaign a boost, former Holland Congressman Pete Hoekstra announced yesterday that he is supporting fellow Hope College graduate Terry Lynn Land’s US Senate candidacy. Hoekstra had stepped down from Capitol Hill in 2000 in a failed gubernatorial bid, and then was trounced by incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow in last year’s election. Land, the former Michigan Secretary of State from Byron Center, is the only announced Republican candidate thus far, while Democrats are apparently rallying behind Congressman Gary Peters in the race to replace Carl Levin.
