Democratic candidate Mark Schauer officially joins governor's race

Posted: Updated:

(04/18/14) - The teams are set.

Incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and Democrat Mark Schauer are both officially running for the governor's office.

Thursday, Snyder turned in his petition. Schauer did the same on Friday.

Schauer has been campaigning for some time now, traveling across the state and laying out his platform.

Friday basically was just a formality.

Schauer turned in about 27,000 signature from all 83 counties, supporting his run for the Governor's office.

He was joined by supporters.

The former state lawmaker is the only Democratic candidate expected to file for the August primary.

Schauer running mate is Lisa Brown, Oakland County clerk.

The race for the Governor will be decided by voters this November.
