Former state Sen. Alan Sanborn has officially filed to be a candidate for the U.S. House seat being vacated by Republican Congresswoman Candice Miller.
The 58-year-old Republican from Macomb County's Richmond Township says in a statement his campaign will focus on core conservative issues, including preserving family values, lowering taxes and eliminating spending waste and defending the nation's borders.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports other Republicans who have filed include state Rep. Anthony Forlini of Macomb County's Harrison Township, retired businessman Paul Mitchell and state Sen. Phillip Pavlov of St. Clair.
No Democrats have filed yet. The deadline is April 19 for the Aug. 2 primary ballot.
The 10th Congressional District covers most of northern Macomb County, and all of Huron, Lapeer, St. Clair and Sanilac counties.
