'Walberg Watch' blog launched

A Michigan resident launched a new blog that is devoted to keeping former state Rep. Tim Walberg out of congress.
Walberg Watch aims to cover "Tim Walberg, the Radical Right's Republican Nominee for Congress in MI-07, and Supporting Democratic Nominee Sharon Renier," the site's homepage states.
The blogger, named Fitzy, seems to supportive the newly former Republicans for Granholm group founded by Gil Ziegler, a former Northern Michigan University trustee who was appointed by Gov. John Engler.
"More and more Republicans are realizing that their party has been taken over by the far right. What once was a party devoted to fiscal responsibility and limited government has become a party of men like Tim Walberg, whose extreme social positions divide the country today," Fitzy writes.
Walberg, R-Tipton, soundly defeated U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz in the Aug. 8 primary.
Walberg Watch is also part of a growing network of liberal bloggers in Michigan, led by's Matt Ferguson.
