Questions raised about Schauer's support among Democrats

Schauer campaign not commenting on story that UAW president urged State Senator Gretchen Whitmer to enter race

Mark Schauer. Whitmer turned down King, citing her decision a year ago to not run for governor and focus on raising her young children, according to a Whitmer aide.
