FILE- In a June 20, 2014 file photo, Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder speaks during an interview before signing legislation to provide state funding for Detroit municipal pensions in Detroit. Snyder defied fellow members of the GOP by supporting the Medicaid expansion in the federal health care law, committing state money to help Detroit emerge from bankruptcy and vetoing Republican gun, abortion and voter ID bills. Now the upbeat Snyder is facing a tough bid for a second term. Many Republicans don’t know what to make of his neutrality on social issues and his reluctance to bash Democrats. And he’s still made plenty of enemies among Democrats and their allies in organized labor. (AP Photo/File)
