A2: Governor’s Race

Carol Cain, host of “Michigan Matters,” writes in the Detroit Free Press about the complexity of the gubernatorial race. While most expect an easy Republican win for Ann Arbor businessman Rick Snyder, Cain cautions against the dismissal of Democratic candidate Virg Bernero. University of Michigan regent Denise Ilitch emphasized the support Bernero is garnering from other Democrats. Ilitch, a Democrat, said of Bernero, “I saw him speak (this week) and he literally had people standing in the aisle applauding.” [Source]
