Attorney General Bill Schuette has won the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

In counties throughout the state, Schuette had large leads over Lt. Governor Brian Calley, Sen. Patrick Colbeck and Jim Hines.

Schuette, a former congressman, state lawmaker and appellate judge, was endorsed by President Donald Trump. He says he would cut the state income tax, like Trump reduced federal taxes.
