Candidate Out, Backs Posthumus

Jim Moody can't run for governor, so he's throwing his support of Lietuenant Governor Dick Posthumus.

Moody is a Farmington Hills business owner and his Republican bid for Governor ended when it was learned he didn't have enough petition signatures to appear on the primary ballot.

Now Moody has released a statement saying he's gotten to know Posthumus and he considers him to be "a real standup guy."

Posthumus says he's grateful for Moody's support and expect the two will campaign together.

Posthumus and state Senator John Schwarz of Battle Creek are the two Republican gubernatorial candidates.
