A2: Governor’s Race

The Detroit News reports on a Michigan Press Association forum for gubernatorial candidates – including Republican Rick Snyder of Ann Arbor and state Rep. Alma Wheeler Smith, a Democrat from Salem Township – in Grand Rapids on Friday. The article quotes Snyder: “The issue in this election comes down to really job creation. How do we make our government create an environment where jobs can flourish and let small business go out and innovate?” According to the report, all of the GOP candidates support a part-time legislature – Smith does not.
