LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder is airing his first TV ad for the final two months of the governor's race, emphasizing his accountant credentials as key to building a "strong foundation" for Michigan's recovery.

The Republican speaks throughout the 60-second ad. He says when the "numbers add up," he can help more people.

Snyder repeats successes he has claimed throughout his re-election bid against Democrat Mark Schauer. Those include eliminating a budget deficit, boosting education funding, and helping to lower the state's unemployment rate and create nearly 300,000 private-sector jobs.

The governor acknowledges that residents might not feel the recovery yet, but says they will soon.

Schauer's campaign said Tuesday that Snyder isn't on the side of regular people and accused him of "lecturing" voters about when they'll feel a recovery.
