Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra endorses Brian Ellis over incumbent Amash

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Another West Michigan Republican is getting behind the campaign of Brian Ellis to unseat incumbent Congressman Justin Amash.

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra, who himself unseated 13 term incumbent Republican Guy Vander Jagt in 1992, is endorsing Ellis in the Republican primary. Ellis noted Hoekstra is a "conservative leader" and "highly regarded," calling it a "huge endorsement."

Congressman Amash's camp downplayed the endorsement by saying it's not a surprise that a former Congressman who was a key backer of the NSA domestic spying program would support a candidate who supports spying on Americans.
