Durant ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Michigan.[2] He was defeated by Pete Hoekstra in the Republican primary on August 7, 2012.[3]

On July 26, the Detroit News reported that Senator Rand Paul had endorsed Durant for the Senate race. According to the Detroit News, Paul in his statement said, "Clark Durant is running as a ‘Rebel With a Cause’ to challenge the tax and spend, establishment culture in Washington D.C. We need leaders like Clark who will not just go with the flow. We need creative problem solvers who will get our government back to its constitutional roots. It is important to send someone who will defend liberty and promote solutions to our fiscal mess."[4]
