Race for Michigan 2010

UPDATE -- Hat tip:

The former Michigan State Treasurer, Bob Bowman, filed paperwork Thursday for a run for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Michigan.  Mr. Bowman has not officially declared his candidacy.  And, if he has a website, it is not readily found as of today.

It is not official yet, if Speaker of the House Andy Dillon will run and if Dan Kildee, former Genesee County Treasurer, will run for the Democratic nomination.  Denise Ilitch is out of the race.

So, officially declared on the Democratic side of the Race for Michigan 2010 are Alma Wheeler Smith and Virg Bernero.

The officially declared candidates for Governor on the Republican side of the Race for Michigan 2010 are Mike Bouchard, Mike Cox, Pete Hoekstra, Rick Snyder, and State Senator Tom George.  Mr. George's candidacy was unknown to me until today when I saw him listed in the Free Press online article.  A quick look at his website leads me to question whether or not Tom George is running away from or with the Republican Party.  I am not finding any mention of his party affiliation.
