Governor Hopefuls Woo Undecided Voters Locally 8-02-2010

Seven candidates for governor have been crisscrossing the state to get the support of undecided voters in Tuesday's primary election.
The Republican and Democratic contests are close and could be decided by relatively few votes.
The Republicans are Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, Attorney General Mike Cox, state Sen. Tom George, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra and Ann Arbor businessman Rick Snyder.
The Democrats are Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and House Speaker Andy Dillon.

Cox, George, Snyder and Bernero are all scheduled to make appearances in Mid-Michigan Monday.
Cox visited Midland’s Big Boy Restaurant, 1513 Saginaw St., at 7 a.m. then spoke with voters at the Bringer Inn in Saginaw.
WNEM TV5's Jay Brandow caught up with Cox during his Saginaw stop
"We're going to cover as much territory as possible and talk to the people about leadership," he said while shaking hands with area residents.
Cox also addressed the current television ads that claim he’s not telling the truth about a 2002 party that took place at the home of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
Cox denied the allegations and said he never set foot in the Manoogian Mansion.
"I was Prosecutor at the time -- busy with my work,” he told Brandow. "There was no party and I was not there."
Meanwhile, George will spend time at the Genesee County Fix Michigan Center, 12741 S. Saginaw St., Suite D2 in Grand Blanc at 1 p.m.
Snyder will be making door-to-door stops in Grand Blanc at 2 p.m., followed by a stop at Little Joe's Restaurant, 11518 S Saginaw St.
Bernero will attend an afternoon rally at the UAW Local 659 Hall in Flint. He will also visit a rally of United Steelworkers Union Hall in Midland.
Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm can't seek re-election this year because of Michigan's term limits law.
