LANSING, MI (AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder says he is not angling for a cabinet position despite speculation that his travels around the country promoting Michigan’s rebound is a pathway to a Republican presidential bid or other position at the federal level.
Snyder told The Associated Press Monday following an event in Lansing that a Washington cabinet position is not something he is “really aspiring to.”
Snyder has been talking up the state’s successes after allies formed a nonprofit group called Making Government Accountable.
Sources told The AP last month that Snyder is considering a presidential run and a decision could be made in a few weeks.
But Snyder said Monday that he’s “proud to be governor of Michigan” and “it’s important to tell the Michigan story.”
