Schauer Close to Running for Michigan Governor

Former Rep. Mark Schauer (D-MI) "is in the final stages of preparing for a race for governor. He won't say definitively yet that he's in, but in an interview with the Detroit Free Press, he said: "I'm strongly leaning toward putting a campaign together and getting going. The desire is there."

"And as he inches closer to an official campaign kickoff, other potential Democratic candidates have begged off, offering their support to Schauer. Last week, it was former Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and state Board of Education President John Austin who stepped aside."

"The only one left who is seriously talking about a race is state Rep. Vicki Barnett (D), who said last week that she is still weighing her options and talking with supporters about a possible run."
