The Michigan Messenger reports Pete Hoeksta campaigned with Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) in Lenawee County over the weekend.

Steve King is a documented bigot. Plain and simple. He represents a lily-white district — Iowa’s 5th Congressional District is 95.5% white — and is notorious for taking harsh positions against gay people, blacks, and Mexicans, among others. Steve Benen’s “Political Animal” column in Washington Monthly really breaks it down.

Last week, Pete stood up with the CNN’s 2009 Wingnut of the Year, Michele Bachmann. And the over the weekend, with Steve King.

With judgment so poor on who Pete Hoekstra associates himself with on the campaign trail, how can we trust him to lead Michigan in the Governor’s chair?

Michigan can, and must, do better!
