Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley has launched his long-anticipated bid for the Republican nomination for governor.

The Republican launched his long-expected candidacy Tuesday while vowing to continue an economic rebound that has resulted in the addition of more than a half million jobs in Michigan.

Calley is a former legislator who has served as Governor Rick Snyder's Number Two since 2011.

Snyder cannot seek reelection due to term limits. Calley faces a field that already includes Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, state Senator Patrick Colbeck, and Saginaw Doctor Jim Hines.
