Schuette launches campaign for governor”

Attorney General Bill Schuette is expected to announce he's running for governor Tuesday night at an annual barbecue fundraiser in his hometown of Midland.

His wife Cynthia introduced him, joined by their children Bill and Heidi.

Schuette repeatedly attacked the legacies of former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who left office seven years ago, and Pres. Barack Obama, who left office in January, blaming their policies for many of Michigan's current problems.

There is speculation that Lt. Gov. Brian Calley could be another Republican candidate for governor but he has made no announcement yet. Dr. Jim Hines and state Sen.

Schuette has been Attorney General since 2011, but he got his start in politics more than 30 years when he defeated an incumbent Congressman to represent MI in Washington.

Schuette, nearing the end of his second term as Attorney General, is throwing his hat in the ring to replace the term-limited Gov. Rick Snyder. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton. Two more have formed gubernatorial committees but filed for a waiver pledging not to receive or expend more than $1,000. Gretchen Whitmer is the clear frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.

His fight against same-sex marriage ended at the U.S. Supreme Court.
