Sandy Pensler wants to go to Washington DC to help President Trump “drain the swamp,” so it’s fitting the businessman who specializes in turning around failing companies used the President’s visit to reach out to Trump supporters and promote his US Senate campaign against Debbie Stabenow.
Pensler’s presence was well known at the rally in Washington Township on Saturday night.
The Pensler campaign passed out hundreds of red foam fingers thanking President Trump and supporting Pensler’s message of “Michigan First.” The fingers were a huge hit and were seen across the arena, as well as in multiple media outlets. Pensler also stationed a mobile sign outside the venue thanking Trump.
Beating Stabenow will take money, and Pensler, who has invested $5 million into his campaign, made another media buy coinciding with the Trump rally.
Pensler not only launched a TV commercial saying he will clean up the corruption in DC, he also bought time on radio The ads are running across the state in multiple media markets.
President Trump did not make an endorsement for Pensler or his opponent, Iraq Vet and businessman John James at the rally.
Instead, the President focused his attention on Debbie Stabenow, telling Michiganders they need to stop re-electing her because of her horrendous record on issues like tax cuts, border security, and many others.
After saying Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, was standing in the way of protecting U.S. borders and had voted against tax cuts, Trump said: “And you people just keep putting her back again and again and again. It’s your fault.”
