The guy is primary-ing Hoekstra, who's a kinda-sorta-Conservative.

...Clark was invited to give a speech at a meeting of the past President of the American Bar Association (the professional association for attorneys). His speech emphasized that the greatest barrier to justice for the poor was the monopoly of the legal of profession — not exactly a popular position to take in that audience. The President of the ABA called for Clark’s resignation as Chairman of Legal Services. He was unsuccessful, and the resulting publicity highlighted the barriers to justice that face ordinary people. …. In 1991, Clark co-founded the Cornerstone Schools with Adam Cardinal Maida and other civic leaders. … In 1995, Clark was named a Michiganian of the Year by the Detroit News for his work in education.  --Insurrection quoting Clark's website

He also refused to raise his budget requests as Chairman of Legal Services Corp., which drew the ire of Republicans (no, I'm not surprised.)
