Ok, so who, and why? I see there is already one vote for Hoekstra, but no reason.

Snyder

Pros - 1: He knows how to run a business. I know that's his main line but he seems like he could really help turn around the state Financially. 2: seems to know how to lead 3 : Is not a Politician.

Cons - 1: he's not a politician (), 2: He has little expiernce in government (from what I've read about), ......Can't think of anything else.

So many people complain about him not showing up to debates and all that. I don't see that as a Bad thing. If he really is the Business man he is it makes sense that he would rather act on things then just talk what "should" happen. It would be great if he talked about a plan (which I'm sure he has) for Michigan. That would be great. JMO.

My only concern with Snyder is that we () tried the business man, not a politician thing last time and it didn't work out. I don't quite know how it happened last time when I didn't know more than a handful of people that voted for HER yet she was elected. I think many people have great ideas but can they win, due to the labor situation it seems that the have a huge head start.
