President Donald Trump on Saturday endorsed Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette in the state’s upcoming governor’s race.
Schuette is running to succeed the term-limited Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who has been in office since 2014.
“Attorney General Bill Shuette [sic] will be a fantastic Governor for the great State of Michigan I am bringing back your jobs and Bill will help!,” the president wrote on Twitter, misspelling Schuette’s name.
Last November, Trump became the first Republican presidential candidate to win Michigan in the general election since 1988. Snyder first won the post by 18-points in 2010, replacing then-Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who was term limited, but saw his margin drop en route to his re-election.
Schuette backed Jeb Bush during the 2016 Republican primaries and caucuses, but ultimately endorsed Trump. He later played a role in beating back Jill Stein’s recount efforts in the state.
