DEARBORN, Mich. — Republican Gov. Rick Snyder isn't running for re-election this November, yet he's on the campaign trail — stumping for one ballot proposal and against five others.
He took to the airwaves this past week as guest host for Paul W. Smith on Detroit's WJR-AM and welcomed guests supporting his positions. He says he's planning more media appearances and town hall-style meetings to press his case for the emergency manager law and against the other initiatives — and counter millions of dollars spent on advertising.
Snyder tells The Associated Press it's important to share his views, whether he's on the radio or meeting with residents.
Smith's executive producer Ann Thomas says there was neither money exchanged nor political motivation by the station. She says the show strives to air all viewpoints.
