No current plans to accept public financing for general election
LANSING - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer is seeking public funding for his campaign, meaning he likely will be subject to a $2 million spending limit, at least until the August primary. Zack Pohl, a Schauer spokesman, said the candidate is seeking close to $1 million in public funding for the primary election, for which Schauer has no opponent.
