Former Congressional candidate Mike Detmer – a Republican who ran as a traditional, family-values conservative – is in hot water after sharing on his Facebook page a promo for a pro-Trump bikini calendar.
Detmer posted the promo on Monday morning, and then quickly deleted it after his Facebook followers began to lambaste him. Detmer’s original post:

Detmer appears to have deleted the Facebook post soon after it was posted. The pro-Trump calendar appears to have been produced by a Hartland woman named Sarah Neville. All 12 months of the calendar feature photos of her.
Detmer, a Howell car salesman, ran for the Republican nomination in the 8th Congressional District in 2020. He carried Livingston County in the primary but ended up losing the nomination overall to Paul Junge. Junge then lost a close race in the fall to incumbent U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly.
