A2: Governor’s Race

The Detroit News reports on conservative voters’ uncertainty towards Rick Snyder, the GOP gubernatorial candidate and Ann Arbor businessman. Doug Till, vice president of the Southwest Michigan Tea Party, says of Snyder, “We really don’t know much about him, and that’s our biggest problem.” Snyder’s moderate stance on social issues adds to the uneasiness of conservative voters, according to the report.

Alan Cropsey suggests that Snyder balance his moderation with a more conservative running mate: “If he really wants to activate the conservative base, he needs…somebody that the conservatives would say this guy, this person is with us.” [Source]
