DETROIT (AP) -- Candidates for Michigan secretary of state say the everyday operations of the job can't get lost in higher-profile issues such as campaign finance and enforcement of voters' rights.

Candidates include Republican Ruth Johnson, who has spent six years as Oakland County clerk, and Democrat Jocelyn Benson, a Detroit law professor who has worked as a voting rights policy coordinator.

Three third-party candidates also are running in the Nov. 2 general election.

Most of the candidates support repealing high fees assessed on bad drivers, arguing that it makes driving and insurance more difficult to afford.

Republican Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land can't run again because of term limits. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
