Governor Rick Snyder will formally launch his reelection bid Sunday with a Super Bowl TV ad, followed by a six-stop announcement tour on Monday and Tuesday of next week.
The announcement is no surprise.
The Republican governor has made clear for quite some time his intentions to seek a second four-year term.
The governor could make some mention of his plans Friday afternoon when he addresses the Michigan Press Association.
His likely Democratic opponent on the November ballot is former congressman Mark Schauer.
