The Republican ticket for Governor looks to be finalized, Rick Snyder has chosen a running mate.

Word that Snyder selected State Representative Brian Calley to be his Lieutenant Governor. Calley is from Ionia County, lives in Portland and he's only 33-years old!

Calley is the lawmaker who organized that bus ride home for local troops during Christmas before they were shipped off to Iraq.

An official announcement that Calley will be joining the ticket is expected Wednesday.

Snyder has an announcement scheduled right here in Grand Rapids at the public museum to be followed by a town hall meeting.

The Democratic candidate, Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero hasn't selected his running mate,but we expect to learn his choice in the next few days.
