MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — The voice of late actor and gun advocate Charlton Heston is being used in a Republican's run for the Michigan House.

Gary Glenn said Friday he's using excerpts from two ads Heston recorded. One was for a 1986 campaign to pass right-to-work legislation in Idaho, and another is from Glenn's unsuccessful run for Congress in that state in 1992.

Heston, who died in 2008, says Glenn "tells the truth" and "fights for it." Glenn's a social conservative and president of the American Family Association of Michigan.

Glenn has a son named Heston and tells The Saginaw News they kept in touch.

He's running for the seat held by Midland Republican Jim Stamas, who can't run because of term limits.

Two other Republicans and a Democrat also are seeking the seat.
