Ex-Detroit councilman explores Senate bid

Jan. 6, 2005 at 6:23 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Former Detroit City Councilman Keith Butler has formed an exploratory committee to look at a possible 2006 run for U.S. Senate, Roll Call said Thursday.

Butler, who is also an ordained minister, told his congregation on New Year's Eve he might seek the Republican nomination to face first-term Democrat Debbie Stabenow in November 2006.

An informal adviser to many Michigan statewide candidates, Butler served as the Michigan chairman of Blacks for Reagan-Bush in 1984.

Other prominent Republicans, including White House favorite U.S. Rep. Candice Miller, are also mulling a bid. Stabenow is not expected to have opposition for re-nomination.
