Candidates vie for votes in Michigan’s 20th Senate District

Date:


Two Republican candidates have mounted challenges to the re-election of GOP senator Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton, who is nearing the top of state Republican legislative leadership as president pro tempore of the Senate.

Nesbitt, 42, currently represents Michigan’s 26th Senate District but has filed in the relabeled 20th Senate District, which encompasses much of the same territory as the 26th District and stretches from northern Allegan County and Gaines and Byron townships in Kent County down to Benton Harbor-St. Joseph in Berrien County.

In August, Republican voters will pick between Nesbitt, one of the party’s most senior legislators, and two political newcomers, Kaleb Hudson and Austin Kreutz.

Kaleb Hudson

Hudson is a 20-year-old from Gaines Township mounting his first political campaign. He is studying pastoral ministry and political science in a virtual program at Liberty University and is employed at Rapid Packaging.

“This campaign has been faith-based,” Hudson said. “I put God first in this campaign each and every day.”

Hudson said he was inspired to run to “make sure that the voices of the people are heard.” Although he has ambitions to eventually serve in the U.S. Senate, he also said he believes politics shouldn’t be a career and supports term limits.
