Video: GOP Senate Candidate Pete Hoekstra Airs Racial Ad During Super Bowl

| by Michael Allen

A TV ad, airing during the Super Bowl, for U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra features an Asian woman speaking broken English to accuse Michigan incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow of helping the Chinese economy at the expense of American jobs (video below).

“Thank you Michigan Senator Debbie Spenditnow,” the Asian woman mispronounces, while riding her bike in a rice paddy field: “Debbie spends so much American money, you borrow more and more, from us. You’re economy get very weak, ours get very good. We take your jobs. Thank you Debbie Spenditnow.”

Hoekstra then appears in the ad stating: “I think this race for Michigan Senate is between Debbie ‘spend-it-now’ and Pete ‘spend-it-not.’”
