Governor Snyder files for reelection

Posted: Updated:
  LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has made his re-election bid official by turning in more than 26,000 signatures from all 83 counties to election officials.

The Republican governor was joined by his wife, Sue, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and supporters Thursday morning at the secretary of state building in Lansing. Snyder says he's "absolutely fired up" to continue being governor and is proud of his record.

He emphasizes that Michigan's unemployment rate is the lowest in six years and 250,000 private-sector jobs have been created under his watch.

Asked about Democratic opponent Mark Schauer, Snyder calls him a "career politician." Schauer's criticizing Snyder on education funding, individual tax hikes and other issues.

Gubernatorial candidates from political parties must file at least 15,000 valid signatures by Monday to qualify for the ballot.
