Midget Merger- One less hat in the ring for Michigan Governor. The #4 candidate in a 2.5 person race, Alma Wheeler Smith, dropped out of the race to back fomer House minority whip David Bonior, currently a distant third behind ex-governor Jim Blanchard and state AG Jennifer Granholm. Bonior has made Smith his choice for Lt. Gov. if he gets the nomination. This might help Bonior some in Detroit, as Smith will help with the black vote. Despite his name recognition with political junkies, Bonior would draw a blank stare from the average Joe outstate. He has some union backing, but hasen't caught fire yet.
