Republicans in Trump Country Unite Behind Sandy Pensler for US Senate

Fremont, MI – Today, Sandy Pensler will be the keynote speaker at the Newaygo County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner. He will be receiving endorsements from several Republican leaders and activists in Newaygo County. Newaygo was one of the top ten Michigan counties for Donald Trump in 2016, with 67.1% of General Election voters casting their ballots for him.

“In 2016, I dropped everything to assist in electing Donald J. Trump President of the United States. His experience as a businessman and dedication to shaking things up in Washington, D.C. is what made me want to get involved. Two years later, I’m dedicating my time to help elect another businessman and political outsider to join President Trump in Washington, D.C. Sandy Pensler has what it takes to defeat Debbie Stabenow and is fully committed to putting the interests of Michigan First,” said Diane Schindlbeck, Co-Founder of the Michigan Trump Republicans. Schindlbeck was one of the first activists in Michigan to volunteer for Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016, and served as a County Co-Chair for the campaign.

Jon Bumstead, a lifelong resident of Newaygo County, former State Representative, and owner of Bumstead Construction will also be endorsing Pensler. “I was one of the first elected officials in Michigan to endorse Donald Trump before the 2016 Primary. As a small business owner, I knew Donald Trump would be the best choice for our economy. Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with Sandy Pensler about his plan for Michigan’s economic future. He is committed to reducing burdensome regulations and taxes on business owners, creating an economic environment that will attract more businesses to Michigan and allow for the existing ones to prosper,” said Bumstead. “Sandy Pensler has the experience and knowledge Michigan needs in its next US Senator. I hope you will join me in supporting him.”

Chuck Yob, former Republican National Committeeman for Michigan for 19 years and 2nd Congressional District Chair for Donald Trump in 2016 is getting behind Pensler and believes he has the best chance to unseat Debbie Stabenow in 2018. “I’ve been involved in Republican politics and campaigns in Michigan for many years. I understand how damaging it is to have career politician Debbie Stabenow represent our state as US Senator for so long. Sandy Pensler is hands down the best Republican candidate we’ve ever had in Michigan to defeat her,” Yob said. “He has the resources to execute a successful campaign, and a plan to create jobs and put Michigan First that will resonate with voters. Republicans worked hard two years ago to elect Donald Trump, and Newaygo County was one of his top counties in Michigan, with 67.1% of the vote going to him in the General Election. I hope my fellow Republicans in Newaygo County will work just as hard in 2018 to elect Sandy Pensler Michigan’s next US Senator.”
