Bill Schuette kicked off his campaign for governor earlier this month in his hometown of Midland

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette picked up a big endorsement for his campaign for governor.

A presidential tweet:

Donald J. Trump? @realDonaldTrump

"Attorney General Bill Shuette will be a fantastic Governor for the great State of Michigan. I am bringing back your jobs and Bill will help!"

The president did misspell Schuette’s name.

Schuette thanked the president with a tweet of his own.

A.G. Bill Schuette? @SchuetteOnDuty  

"Thank you @realDonaldTrump for your strong support. Working together, Michigan will start winning again with more jobs, growth & paychecks."

Other Republicans running for Michigan governor may not be as grateful the president is tossing his support behind the Attorney General many months before the GOP primary.
