Who will Schuette pick as a running mate?


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Speculation is swirling around who Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Schuette will pick for his running mate after his elusive answer.

“I can’t tell you what her name is,” Schuette said. “I can’t tell you her name right now.”

24 Hour News 8 Political Report Rick Albin says the following women may be under consideration:

Rep. Laura Cox – Her legislative experience, budget knowledge and residency on the east side of the state could create some geographical balance. However, she is poised to win her first term in the Michigan Senate in November and may not want to take a gamble on the governor’s race.

Candice Miller  –  A former Secretary of State, congresswoman and current Macomb County Public Works commissioner, Miller has massive name identification, is a favorite of Republicans. However, she left Congress presumably to be closer to home and passed on her own run for governor earlier this year.
