LANSING, MI – Rick Snyder is heading into the homestretch of his bid to win the Republican nomination for Michigan governor with a new ad promoting his ability to create

Other candidates in the governor's race are Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, a Democrat, and three more Republicans: Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, state Sen. Tom George and U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra.
