Could Michigan Governor Rick Snyder dive headfirst into the 2016 bid for the presidency? If Former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) is correct, yes, he will.
Coleman told the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas that he’d met with Rick Snyder, and Snyder was running for the office. From the Guardian:
Snyder mingled with donors at a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition(RJC) in Las Vegas on Friday and told at least one attendee that he was a candidate.
On Saturday morning, the former Minnesota senator Norm Coleman told reporters: “I met with Rick Snyder yesterday. He’s running. He’s running.”
In a talk with the RJC board, Snyder himself was not as explicit. Ari Fleischer, a board member and former spokesman for President George W Bush, told the Guardian: “[He] didn’t say to the board that he was running. He made a real strong presentation about his results and successes in Michigan.”
Maybe Snyder will pull a Palin and we can get a real governor in this train wreck of a state.
Despite Coleman’s statement, the spokesperson for the Snyder Camp said that the governor hasn’t decided whether he wants to run in 2016:
Do it, Snyder — every comedy act needs a straight man, and Bush has apparently worn out his welcome on the political right.
