Hoekstra takes down controversial Chinese-themed website
Republican Senate hopeful Pete Hoekstra took down his controversial Chinese-themed website that coincided with a political ad against Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, the Detroit News has reported.
The new 30-second ad takes aim at incumbent Stabenow, as the first did, but features a voiceover by Hoekstra and an image of the U.S. Capitol. Hoekstra spokesman Paul Ciaramitaro said the new commercial "is being added to the rotation" but doesn't replace the ad that debuted Sunday.
The accompanying website www.debbiespenditnow.com now redirects to Hoekstra's campaign site.
