Ex-Minn. Sen.: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder To Run For President In 2016


Former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) told reporters on Saturday that Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) will run for president in 2016.

“I met with Rick Snyder yesterday. He’s running. He’s running,” Coleman said at a Republican Jewish Coalition event in Las Vegas, according to The Guardian.

Snyder has not been vocal about his potential to run in 2016, but he has generated some presidential buzz from Republican donors.

During a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting, Snyder did not mention whether he would run in 2016, Ari Fleischer, a RJC board member, told The Guardian.

“[He] didn’t say to the board that he was running. He made a real strong presentation about his results and successes in Michigan,” Fleischer said. “You have to wonder why people to come to our meetings and it’s probably because he’s thinking of running.”

And despite Coleman’s statement, a spokesperson for Snyder said that the governor has not made a decision yet on 2016.
