Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is welcoming the Democratic president's visit to Marquette.

Snyder said in a statement Thursday that President Barack Obama is right to highlight efforts to expand high-speed wireless internet services in Michigan's Upper Peninsula through Northern Michigan University's WiMAX network.

The president is visiting Marquette Thursday to promote his plan to make high-speed internet access available to nearly all Americans.

Snyder welcomes the president's visit and says he looks forward to Obama "sharing this Upper Peninsula success story" across America.

The new governor was not joining Obama in Marquette. U.S. Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan accompanied the president on the flight from Washington, D.C.
