Governor Rick Snyder has begun his second term as Michigan’s 48th governor. He took the oath of office in a ceremony on the steps of the state Capitol in the freezing cold.

A few hundred people bundled up to brave the cold and witness the start of Governor Snyder’s second term. The term-limited governor cannot run again, but says it would be a mistake to think of him as a lame duck.  He said people who might think that don’t know him.
