LANSING, MI –
Republican Mike Cox is focusing on what he says is his desire to cut government spending and help improve Michigan's business climate in the latest TV ad for his run for governor.
The state's attorney general is one of five Republicans in the Aug. 3 gubernatorial primary.
The new ad begins airing Monday or Tuesday on cable and network stations statewide. It says Cox wants to cut $4 billion in what he calls wasteful spending and cut taxes by $2 billion.
Other Republican candidates are Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, state Sen. Tom George of Kalamazoo County, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Holland and Ann Arbor venture capitalist Rick Snyder.
Democrats in the race are Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and House Speaker Andy Dillon.
