The candidates are waiting for the votes to be counted. Republican candidate for governor Rick Snyder says if he is elected he will not wait to begin planning for his administration. Snyder says he intends to bring a sense of "crisis" to Lansing:
Not a crisis of panic, but a crisis of determination because we've been in a crisis so long in this state that we don't act that way, and we are in a crisis. There are a lot of important things that need to be done and I'm going to ask the Legislature to buckle down with me and get to the work that needs to be done and show our citizens that we deserve to get elected.
Snyder says he would like to see Republican majorities in the Legislature, but he intends to work well with Republicans and Democrats.
