LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette plans to kick off his re-election campaign at a series of stops across the state next week.
The Republican will start Monday in Midland, his hometown, and finish Thursday in Marquette in the Upper Peninsula. In between, he'll visit Detroit, Lansing and a number of other cities.
The 60-year-old Schuette is a former congressman, state lawmaker and appeals judge. He was elected attorney general in 2010 and is seen as a potential candidate for governor in 2018.
Mark Totten (TAH'-ten) is campaigning to be the Democratic nominee for attorney general. He's a Michigan State University law professor and a former Justice Department lawyer.
Democratic and Republican activists will formally nominate their attorney general candidates at summer conventions.
