LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – The race to be the next governor of Michigan has a new entrant.

Dr. Jim Hines filed nominating petitions bearing more than 22,000 names with the Michigan Secretary of State today.

According to a Hines news release, signatures were gathered from every congressional district in the state.

Hines admits he does not have a long political history.

He instead detailed his history as a doctor, missionary, small business owner and chief of medicine for a large healthcare system.

Hines said “If the voters are tired of politicians and are looking for outsiders, I am their candidate.”

Governor Rick Snyder is term-limited out of office at the end of 2018.
