Last night the Republican Lincoln Tribute Dinner fundraiser was held in Kalamazoo. Hundreds of supporters from all over the area were on hand. Governor Snyder was one of the speakers and he discussed some of the most important things he'd like to get done if he wins re-election. He said the state should continue to pursue what he calls "good government" and that includes "making sure budgets are balanced". He said creating more jobs would be a top priority as well.

Snyder also said about four years ago many thought the state's "best days were behind us." But he said that's not the case anymore.
