State Attorney General Bill Schuette (R) “is the latest candidate for Michigan governor to request public funding for his primary campaign. [He] filed an application on June 25 requesting $211,329.36 in public funds, which the state provides as a 2-1 match on small contributions from in-state residents.”

Former Detroit Health Director Abdul El-Sayed (D) and former state Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D) “were the first candidates to request public funding ahead of the Aug. 7 primary, but Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and state Sen. Patrick Colbeck have indicated they may file applications as well.” (Detroit News)
