Gov. Snyder visits Mid-Michigan

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Rick Snyder was in Mid-Michigan on Wednesday making several campaign stops.

The governor was in Marlette Wednesday afternoon touring a dairy farm, following a key endorsement from Michigan farmers in his bid for re-election. 

The focus of Snyder's visit was farming and what agriculture means for the state's economy. 

After his tour of a dairy farm in Marlette, the governor set aside some time for a one-on-one interview to discuss some of the biggest issues facing Mid-Michigan.

In matters the state has control over and in light of the trooper-involved high-speed crash that killed 64-year-old Jacqueline Nichols, TV5 asked Snyder if he thought it was time to ban high-speed chases in the state, similar to what many cities have already done.

"Our focus should be on keeping residents safe," Snyder said.

Many residents still wonder if that's possible given the looming cuts to Flint's police force.

TV5 also reached out to the offices of democratic challenger Mark Schauer, but did not receive a response.
