The Greater Michigan Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors has endorsed Karl Ieuter's candidacy for the state house. The organization's Wednesday announcement is the latest in what may be a contested race for the 98th District.
Fellow Midland Republican Gary Glenn, Democrat Joan Brausch and Bay County-based Levi O'Brien have also announced their campaigns for the seat, which will be vacated by current Midland Republican Representative Jim Stamas.
Ieuter's longtime support and advocacy for local contractors and the construction industry earned the endorsement, according to a statement released by the organization.
Michigan's 98th district represents portions of Bay and Midland counties.
