MI governor Snyder re-election gets tepid response

Posted: Updated:
 Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has accomplished much of what he said he set out to do when he was elected four years ago.
    
He's logged improvements in the state's economic health, presided over the creation of 250,000 private-sector jobs and confronted many of Detroit's worsening financial problems. That's more than many governors achieve in a single term.
    
But instead of cruising to re-election on the fulfillment of his 2010 promises, Snyder's bid for re-election has been met with ambivalence by parts of his own party. Some Republicans don't know what to make of his neutrality on social issues and his reluctance to bash Democrats. And he's made plenty of enemies among Democrats and their allies in organized labor, too.
    
Snyder never held public office until he became governor.
