It's official.   Governor Snyder is running for a second term. He made the announcement on Thursday announcing a 2-day, six-city campaign tour beginning next week. 

His agenda looks like this:  Monday morning at 9, he's set to visit James Group International in Detroit.  From there, he travels to Lansing for a stop at the Two Men and a Truck Company at 1 p.m.  Then it's off to Grand Rapids for a campaign stop at the Downtown Market.  That speech is set to begin at 3:34 p.m.

On the second day of the campaign swing, the Governor heads north to Traverse City to appear at Alfie Embroidery.  That address is set to begin at 9 o'clock.  He'll then travel to Zender's in Frankenmuth before finishing up the swing at Oakland Community College in Farmington Hills..  The governor will be appealing to the young and seasoned voter on the successes and growth in the state since he took the helm.

Campaign finance records are due out today but indications are that Snyder has raised far more money for his election than his likely challenger Mark Schauer.  The Associated Press is reporting that Snyder had about $4 million in his coffers at the end of last year compared to $1 million for his democratic challenger.
