Longtime Michigan Republican power broker Chuck Yob is endorsing Shelby Township Clerk Stan Grot's campaign for Secretary of State.

Grot announced the endorsement in a Facebook statement Thursday afternoon.

"I am extremely honored to receive the support and endorsement of the former Michigan Republican National Committeeman Chuck Yob," Grot said. "Chuck Yob is considered to be the Dean of the Michigan Republican party, personally I consider Chuck to be my mentor and a friend. Chuck is one of the most effective and influential leaders of our times in our Michigan Republican Party. Thank you Chuck for your friendship and your endorsement of my candidacy for Michigan Secretary of State."

Grot also announced the endorsement of Rep. Paul Mitchell, as previously reported by WMP.

"The very first endorsement for my candidacy for Michigan Secretary of State I received was, from our 10th Republican Congressional District Congressman, The Honorable Paul Mitchell," Grot said. "Paul Mitchell is a true conservative leader in Washington; he is very well respected and admired by his constituents. When Congressman Mitchell talks, people in Washington listen. He is representing our conservative core values and is working hard on our behalf. I am proud to call him a friend and appreciate his support and endorsement for my candidacy for Michigan Secretary of State. Thank you Congressman Mitchell." 

Grot faces State Senator Mike Kowall, and MSU Professor Joseph Guzman in the battle for the Republican nomination for Secretary of State, which will be decided by precinct delegates next summer.

  1. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Chuck Yob endorsed a client of his son, John Yob.
