LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The two men running for Michigan governor are launching what are expected to be tough-talking and expensive fall campaigns.
More is on the line than Republican Rick Snyder and Democrat Virg Bernero's personal ambitions to lead Michigan. All 50 states will be redrawing district boundaries for congressional and legislative seats based on new census counts.
The outcome could influence Michigan's course for the next decade, making winning the governorship even more important.
Snyder kicks off the fall campaign season with an advantage because of his personal wealth and current lead in the polls.
Bernero is fighting back by promoting his support for working-class voters. Unions are expected to run ads to help him. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
