Calley hints at run for governor


Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley is moving closer to a formal announcement that he will run next year for the Republican nomination to succeed Governor Rick Snyder.

   Calley posted a video on his personal website that talks a little about his history and leadership style. He also appeared alongside Governor Snyder at a Macomb County business lunch, where he delivered what sounded an awful lot like a campaign speech.

   But Calley still stops short of declaring himself a candidate.

   “Oh, I’ll just have to say, stay tuned.”      

   Calley says a “big announcement” will come May 30th. He says the successes under the Snyder administration include a tax overhaul and making Michigan a right-to-work state. He did not address controversies such as the Flint water crisis.
