Michigan needs genuine leadership. Leaders solve problems. That’s what Patrick Colbeck does. He solves problems. He doesn’t solve problems the way most politicians do. He has solutions that actually work. How does he do that? By applying engineering problem-solving know-how born of years of private sector experience in engineering and management. We don’t need another politician. We need a problem-solver. That’s why I am supporting Patrick Colbeck for Governor.

Ted Cruz

United States Senator

“I’m proud to endorse Patrick Colbeck in the race to become Michigan’s next Governor. He is exactly the sort of principled leader the citizens of Michigan need,” said Cruz. “Patrick is a champion of the grassroots, and is committed to promoting principled solutions on important issues like jobs, taxes, and health care that will benefit everyone.”

David Barton

WallBuilders

“Behind Patrick’s boldness is a strong faith in God. John Adams once noted that a politician will compromise core principles while a statesman will not, and that what makes the difference between the two, is a fear of God. We are confident that Patrick Colbeck is a statesman. We have too few statesmen in public service today. When we find them, we need to support them.  So, Cheryl and I urge you to support Patrick and his wife Angie with both your time and treasure to assist in their campaign to become the next Governor of Michigan.”

Apostle Ellis L. Smith

Lead Pastor, Jubilee City Church

As a leader in the urban community, I sometimes find myself in a political no man’s land because my political perspective is navigated by a biblical worldview, which is not always in alignment with the left or the right. It’s virtually impossible to see a political candidate who possesses like-minded values and guiding principles. Patrick Colbeck is the personification of such a political leader.

Jack Lousma

Colonel, USMC (Ret.) |Former NASA Astronaut

“Pat Colbeck is right on target with his agenda of ‘Principled Solutions’ for Michigan. After decades of ‘creeping liberalism’, our citizens are running out of ‘airspeed, altitude, and ideas’ all at the same time, and we are approaching the proverbial, unrecoverable ‘graveyard spiral’ into oblivion.”

Bob Dutko

“The Bob Dutko Show” | WMUZ – 103.5 FM Detroit | Michigan’s #1 Christian Radio Show

“Senator Patrick Colbeck is exactly what Michigan needs in a Governor. Voters regularly say they want a leader who will not compromise on principle and then politicians regularly claim they are that leader….until elected. Pat Colbeck however has never wavered once since his election to the Michigan Senate. He has been a true champion for Michigan conservatives, fighting on behalf of Christians, the unborn, traditional values, religious liberties, parental rights, lower taxes, economic freedom and job creating, business friendly policies.”

“People have been asking me who I support for the next governor of Michigan. The answer- Pat Colbeck who is a sitting senator, a literal rocket scientist who understands economics as well. One of his goals is to eliminate the state income tax without raising taxes. He’s a TRUE conservative- fiscal, moral and constitutional.  If you truly want change and not more establishment hacks, vote Colbeck. He has the right stuff without the baggage of bowing to political correctness and the oligarchy of the rich. Remember his name. I support Pat wholeheartedly.”

Mark Gurley

Co-director of the Michigan Oak Initiative and as the Grassroots vice-chair for the MIGOP.

“I have known Patrick Colbeck for many years. I wholeheartedly endorse him to be the next Governor of Michigan. Today, with the government running wild, we need somebody with Principled Solutions like Patrick Colbeck to be our next Governor. Doing what is right is far more important than doing what is easy or politically expedient. Michiganders need a governor who will represent the common interests of all citizens above special interests of a few. This is precisely why we need Patrick Colbeck as our next governor.”

Thayrone X

Host of ‘On The Edge with Thayrone’ | WAAM Radio, 1600 am

I endorse Pat Colbeck for Governor because he will fix Michigan’s roads once and for all without a tax increase. He will get rid of our state income tax and the senior pension tax. Several other states have no income tax and it’s time to put our money back in our pockets where it belongs. Colbeck will bring high quality, market based healthcare to Michigan families that lowers costs across the board. He will end Common Core and put education back into the hands of parents, teachers and students. Pat Colbeck will encourage and foster jobs growth by getting out of the way of the businesses that create them. He’ll cut job-killing regulations and make Michigan second to none in economic growth. He will strongly secure Michigan citizens’ rights to self-defense. Pat Colbeck will make Michigan’s government lean, efficient, and transparent. Please join me in endorsing and electing Patrick Colbeck Governor in 2018!

“Colbeck knows how to execute and work for the people. He is humble and assertive and is bold and takes stands on what is right because he is a servant leader who knows that he represents us. He will be the people’s Governor.”

Reverend Christopher Thoma

Pastor of Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church | Hartland, Michigan.

“Patrick is the man we want as our governor, and as a pastor concerned by the challenges facing the Christian Church in post-modern America, I’m grateful that he’s willing to step out in front and lead the way. Oliver Cromwell is the one who said, “Subtlety may deceive you; integrity never will.” In politics, integrity matters—perhaps more than anything else.”

William Wagner

“Pat Colbeck, without fear or favor to any political interest, stands for truth and fights for the people of Michigan.  With his principled solutions to the challenges faced by Michigan, he will make our state great again… and restore integrity to the governing process.”

Catherine Engelbrecht

President | True the Vote

“Pat has my most sincere endorsement. His commitment to liberty and integrity is a model for any American seeking to represent fellow citizens. There is no better choice for the Governor of Michigan than Pat Colbeck.”

Wes Nakagiri

Founder | Founder of ReTake Our Gov

“Patrick Colbeck is one of the most principled public servants I have met. His conservative values and his moral compass keeps him on the “right” path for Michigan. Patrick is someone I trust to “drain the swamp.” Lansing will not change Patrick, Patrick will change Lansing. It is an honor and privilege to endorse Patrick Colbeck for Governor.”
