Tim Greimel

Oakland County Democratic state House Rep. Tim Greimel (Auburn Hills) isn’t running for his party’s nomination for Michigan Attorney General – yet. “I haven’t made an official announcement, yet,” he said, “but we need an attorney general that is going to stand up for everyday people and consumers, and that was my background before joining the state legislature. It’s fair to say I’m seriously considering it.” Now in his third and final term in the state House, Greimel said the Dems named him House leader in his first two terms, which suggests he may have support within his contingent to get the nomination in next year’s August state caucus. Each party’s nomination for attorney general, lieutenant governor and secretary of state are determined by the party’s caucus, which then goes on to face the opposing

party’s selection in the November general election. Other hopefuls for the Dem’s AG pick include Dana Nessel, a former Wayne County prosecutor and Ann Arbor-based attorney known for her successful fight for same-sex marriage; former U.S. District Attorney Pat Miles and Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith. On the Republican side, current conservative House Speaker Tom Leonard (R-DeWitt), a former Michigan assistant attorney general and prosecutor for Genesee County, has been mentioned as a possible candidate. “There is a very clear difference in the track record with Tom Leonard and me when it comes to standing up for consumers and working people, and looking out for the underdog.”
