New website released that highlights the awful record of Tom McMillin's opponent. Spread it around!

Good article about the #MikeBishopTax from 2007:



...
A year later, Gov. Jennifer Granholm and state lawmakers created a replacement tax for the SBT named the "Michigan Business Tax." The MBT sends a message that Michigan is "open for business," said the governor. Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop predicted that it "will help set Michigan on the path to economic recovery."

But the MBT does not live up to these platitudes and fails the explicit objectives set forth in the law that orders replacement of the SBT. Distinguishing the two taxes, the governor stated that the MBT "flips the SBT on its head." This is an apt metaphor, because the MBT resembles the SBT hanging upside down — a vampire awakened from its slumber and still preying upon the economy.

I hear the ad is playing locally on Fox News and other stations.

Excellent how he's using Snyder and Brooks Patterson clips to show the lousy record of his opponent! Go Tom!

When is the Primary? Should we do a RPF mini-money-bomb?

Who is paying for that? Is one of the "liberty" PACs chipping in on this race?

I wonder if Mark Levin would have him on.

Remember, Rogers is going to be his competition.

The campaign bought the ad. I have zero inside knowledge, but I would imagine that took most of the campaign's funds.

Tom was saying today that he's doing quite well at fundraising. I think this is a golden opportunity for a huge victory for the liberty movement. We should definitely do the money bomb here!

I hope Tom has enough $$$ to get that ad on the air and make sure everyone in the district sees it ... devastating

I can't imagine it's trending that well since the MikeBishopTax hashtag itself doesn't have much traction on Twitter.

Also, found this Twitter handle going after McMillin, which also led to a website monitoring him.
