Lansing, Mich. (WZZM) - The democratic candidate for Michigan's governor has filed the nominating petitions required to get his name on the ballot in November.

Friday, Mark Schauer delivered more than 27,000 signatures to the State Bureau of Elections office in Lansing. More than a thousand volunteers helped collect those signatures around the state.

"Michigan is ready for change," Schauer said in a news release Friday. "We need an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

Schauer says he will make education a top priority because, "good jobs come from a good education."

"I'll be a voice to help small businesses get the same breaks as big corporations to help them create jobs," Schauer also said in the news release.

Schauer will face current Governor Rick Snyder in the November election. Snyder delivered his nominating petitions to the State Bureau of Elections on Thursday.
