Economy looms large in Michigan's US Senate race

Michigan's economic misery topped the list of issues in the U.S. Senate race long before the debate over rescuing the U.S. financial industry came up.

It's even bigger now as uncertainty swirls around what's next for the nation's economy.

Incumbent U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, a Detroit Democrat and Michigan's longest serving U.S. senator, said his vote last Wednesday in support of the $700 billion rescue plan was made "with many qualms."

His Republican opponent, state Rep. Jack Hoogendyk, said it's a vote he wouldn't have made at all.

I think Hoogendyk said he would have voted "no," not that he wouldn't have voted at all.
