Snyder, Schauer Speak On 2014 Campaign

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Governor Rick Snyder has announced he plans to run for governor again this year. He kicked off the campaign with a tour around the state Monday and Tuesday, including a stop in Lansing.

But before that, an ad ran during Super Bowl Sunday, promoting Snyder's next step. Some called the governor "Aqua Man" as he emerged from underwater, but his democratic opponent called it strange.

"It was an interesting approach. We don't need more happy talk and slick Super Bowl ads. Wwhat we need are policies that actually work, that's why we need a new governor," said Dem. Mark Schauer.

The governor counters his policies are working and just look at the job creation. "I don't take credit for creating jobs per se, but we've created an environment to really make job creation happen and that is true," said Snyder.

"We can play semantics for a long time. The results are we're growing Michigan," he added.

Schauer contends the governor's policies favor the wealthy and six times during an 11 minute interview with 6 News, he asserts the governor is not in touch with middle class families.

But, the governor had a come back. "I'm not surprised at a career politician making comments like that. That's just one of the realities. We're in a campaign. I stick to relentless positive action. I am in touch," said Snyder.

With still 274 days before voting, a lot can still happen.
