With Democratic Sen. Carl Levin set to retire at the end of his term in 2014, state GOP leader and former RNC Chair candidate Saul Anuzis sees a big opportunity for a Republican Senate seat pickup:
Names like Rep. Justin Amash have been bandied about as potential replacements, but today, Anuzis put forth a new one: Dr. Ben Carson. Ever since his brilliant National Prayer Breakfast speech last month, Dr. Carson’s conservative star has been on the rise. But does he have a shot at the U.S. Senate?
He hasn’t ruled out a future presidential bid … maybe a seat in Congress would help him make up his mind.
