Mark Schauer Names Running Mate


(WLNS) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer has selected Lisa Brown as his running mate.

Brown is currently Oakland County's Clerk/Register of Deeds. She has also worked as State Representative for Michigan's 39th District, which included Commerce Twp., West Bloomfield and Wolverine Lake.

Lisa Brown is perhaps best known for her role in what's been called the "Vagina-gate" scandal, when Brown and then-State Representative Barb Byrum were punished in 2012 for using the word "vagina" on the floor of the House of Representatives. The story made national headlines.

Schauer is making the formal announcement today in Southfield, Flint and Grand Rapids.

We'll have more on 6 News.
