CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Conservative gubernatorial candidate Patrick Colbeck has enlisted former General Motors vice chairman Bob Lutz to help raise money for his campaign.

Colbeck announced Thursday that Lutz will be finance chairman, a month after Lutz endorsed his candidacy. Lutz was GM’s product guru and had a long career at all three Detroit automakers.

Colbeck, a Republican state senator, says he’s “thrilled” someone of Lutz’s character will help “take our campaign to the next level.” He says the two worked together to help restore a portion of the former Willow Run Bomber Plant so it could become home to a museum.

As of October, Colbeck’s campaign had raised $157,000 but had just $13,000 on hand.

Other GOP candidates include Attorney General Bill Schuette, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Dr. Jim Hines.
