OAKLAND COUNTY (WKZO) -- Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Mark Schauer has scheduled three press conferences across the state today to make what his staff is calling a big announcement.
We have learned from sources that he has chosen former State House Representative Lisa Brown to be his running mate., and if selected by the party, would become the Lt. Governor.
Brown got national attention when she was banned from speaking on the Michigan house floor for using what came to be known as the V-word.
Brown, who is now the Oakland County Clerk is said to have skills as a campaigner and fund raiser.
She was one of four clerks in the state to issue Marriage licenses to gay couples the day after Judge Bernard Friedman’s ruling was issued.
