Republicans running for Michigan governor are preparing for the first of two televised debates.
WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids will host the debate on Wednesday evening.
All four Republican candidates will participate: Attorney General Bill Schuette, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, state Sen. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines.
The winner in the August primary will face a Democrat in November.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder cannot run again due to term limits.
