Schauer in no hurry to pick running mate

LANSING (WKZO) -- Democrat Mark Schauer is the only candidate seeking his party's nomination at this point in the 2014 gubernatorial race, and he is in no hurry to pick a running mate.

The "Lansing State Journal" reports several names are surfacing as possibilities, with all being women.  Schauer has only said he will decide on a running mate before the primary on August 5th.  Those rumored to be under consideration are Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum, state Representative Rashida Tlaib of Detroit and Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown, and all three aren't saying if they will run with Schauer at this point.
