LANSING (WKZO) -- Former Battle Creek congressman Mark Schauer is seeking public funds for the Democratic gubernatorial primary in August, even though he does not have an opponent.

Under the state's finance law, Schauer can get up to two-million dollars in public funds, but is required to raise at least 75-thousand dollars in donations of 100-dollars or less from residents.  Former Republican Governor John Engler and former Democratic Governor Jim Blanchard also took public funds during primaries in which they were unopposed.

A spokesperson for Governor Rick Sndyer has said his campaign will not seek funding from the public.
