LANSING (AP) Democratic gubernatorial candidate Shri Thanedar, who has risen in polling thanks to a multimillion-dollar ad campaign, is taking a “temporary pause” from TV ads.

Spokesman Tony Lewis says the campaign achieved its “first phase” goals and objectives, and halted the months-long TV blitz to prepare for the final stretch of the race.

The Democratic and Republican primaries are in August. Thanedar has given his campaign nearly $6 million of his own money.

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder cannot run again due to term limits.
