Michigan Lt. Governor Brian Calley is gaining momentum in the race for the Republican nomination for Governor.

New poll numbers show what was once a large lead for Attorney General Bill Schuette has now dwindled to single digits.

Schuette leads with 28% followed by Brian Calley with 17%. State Senator Patrick Colbeck received 7%, and Dr. Jim Hines received 3%.

The race remains wide open with 45% of voters undecided.

The Strategic National survey was conducted March 19-20th, including 400 likely Republican Primary voters.

At one point, Schuette led by over 30%, an advantage now cut by more than half.

“These numbers are likely to continue to move in Calley’s direction as his name ID catches up with Bill Schuette,” said John Yob, CEO of Strategic National

Michigan voters will decide the race in early August.
