Marquette, MichiganJanuary 16, 2014 — Alan Arcand Challenges Benishek for Michigan’s 1st Congressional District

 Congressman Dan Benishek is facing competition from a fellow Republican for Michigan’s 1st Congressional Seat. Unlike Democrat Jerry Cannon who disagrees with Benishek’s view of responsible spending and personal responsibility, the Republican newcomer to the race seems to agree with all of Benishek’s positions.

 Alan Arcand is quoted as saying Benishek is not a good leader, lacks integrity, does not uphold the Constitution, and does not follow through on what he says. After hearing that, you would expect to hear disagreements with Benishek’s positions.

 Arcand dislikes Obamacare – as does Benishek. He believes bills passed should state the constitutional authority for the law – as does Benishek. He wants better benefits for veterans – like the ones Benishek has supported. He didn’t state any behavior or votes to support the personal attacks, but does have one major complaint about Congressman Benishek… While Benishek uses email and Facebook to keep constituents current, Arcand promises to use Twitter as well.

 So apparently, the main complaint about congressman Benishek is that he doesn’t speak in 140 characters or less. So… if you like Benishek’s positions but you prefer a congressman who tweets about where he’s having lunch, or what Nancy Pelosi is wearing today, you now have an option. If Mr. Arcand is running to offer an alternative to Benishek, I hope he offers more differences than tweets.
