Bernero Brushes Aside Poll Numbers

Democratic nominee Virg Bernero is brushing aside talk of polls that show him trailing Republican Rick Snyder in the race to become Michigan’s next governor.

The Lansing mayor attended a worship service Sunday morning at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit, telling the dozens in attendance that he’s heard from “pollsters and pundits,” but it’s now time “for the voters to weigh in.”

In addition to polling, Snyder has the edge in fundraising as Tuesday’s election approaches.

The Ann Arbor businessman planned stops Sunday in Traverse City, Cadillac, Big Rapids and Grand Rapids.

Michigan’s candidates for the U.S. House, secretary of state, attorney general and the state Legislature are among those also campaigning this weekend in a final push for votes.
