LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - An MSU law professor wants to be state attorney general, but to get there, Mark Totten must defeat the GOP Incumbent Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Democrat Totten paints Schuette as a guy who is using his office as a stepping stone to be governor. "I think that's the drastic case with Bill Schuette. He's using narrow issues to please the right of his party so he can come out of a primary someday," said Totten.

Totten is pro-choice, anti-death penalty, for medical marijuana and pro-gay marriage, the opposite of Schuette's beliefs.

In the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court decision, Schuette does not favor a new parole hearing right now for those behind bars for life who were convinced of a felony as a juvenile. Totten says he has not made a decision on that and is concerned about protecting the rights of the victims in those cases, which is also what Schuette has said.
