Announcing his candidacy today, Bill Schuette made several campaign stops across the state, including one in Grand Rapids. The Republican from Midland has served in the Michigan Senate and was a congressman in the U.S. House. He has also served as a judge on the Michigan Court of Appeals.
At today's news conference, Schuette took aim at the Granholm administration, saying its policies, including a plan to house Guantanamo Bay prisoners in Michigan, threatened security.
Candidates for attorney general will be picked next year at state party conventions.
