Candidates

  • Gary Artinian
  • John Engler, incumbent governor

Engler, a two-term incumbent, faced token opposition in the Republican primary, winning re-nomination with 90 percent of the vote. Following Lt. Gov. Connie Binsfeld's decision to not seek a third term, State Senate Majority Leader Dick Posthumus received the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor.[2]

Democratic Primary

Candidates

  • Geoffrey Fieger, Attorney
  • Larry Owen, former Mayor of East Lansing
  • Doug Ross

Early in the race, Owen was considered the front runner.[4] But due to Fieger's notoriety and personal wealth, he surpassed his opponents. He ended spending almost $6 million of his own money in the race.[5] Fieger won a close race, taking 41 percent of the vote.[6] State Rep. Jim Agee, after securing the support from the Michigan Education Association was picked by Fieger to be his running mate, over Fieger's initial preferred choice state Rep. Candace Curtis.[7]
