Snyder's campaign is emphasizing his money advantage and decision not to take contributions from political action committees. The Schauer camp says he has cut into Snyder's fundraising edge without spending as much as the governor.
A recent EPIC-MRA poll showed the candidates about even. Snyder had 46 percent of likely voters polled and Schauer 43 percent, with a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
