Peter "Pete" Hoekstra (born October 30, 1953) is a former Republican U.S. Representative for Michigan's 2nd congressional district who served in the House from 1993 until 2011. He was an unsuccessful candidate for Governor of Michigan in 2010 and is expected to run for the United States Senate seat of Debbie Stabenow in 2012.

Born in Groningen, The Netherlands, he moved to America with his parents at the age of three. He received a B.A. in political science from Hope College in 1975 and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Michigan in 1977.

Hoekstra has a conservative voting record, consistent with the conservative nature of the 2nd congressional district. However, he opposes amending the Constitution to prohibit flag desecration.
