Heise ends campaign for Congress, endorses Kowall
Plymouth Township Supervisor Kurt Heise is ending his campaign for Congress and endorsing state Sen. Mike Kowall, the Senate majority floor leader, to succeed retiring GOP Rep. Dave Trott.
Heise said on Facebook late Monday that he views Kowall – who joined the race last week – as capable of appealing to “not just to a narrow swath of primary voters, but to the increasing number of independent voters who will actually determine the outcome” of the general election in November.
“The other Republican candidates cannot meet that basic test of electability in November. That is why I declared my candidacy last fall,” Heise wrote. “That has now changed.”
