Michigan Chamber endorses Mike Cox for governor



The Michigan Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Republican Attorney General Mike Cox for governor.

Chamber President Rich Studley says Michigan's next governor must be bold, decisive, knowledgeable about state government and able to hit the ground running.

He said Tuesday that Cox is the candidate "who best meets these four criteria."

Democratic candidate Virg Bernero and Republicans Cox, Mike Bouchard, Pete Hoekstra and Tom George filled out the chamber's questionnaire and participated in a candidate forum.

The chamber's board made its endorsement after interviewing Cox, Bouchard and Hoekstra.

Republican Rick Snyder and Democrat Andy Dillon didn't participate in the process.

The chamber represents around 6,800 employers.
