All week, host Jeremy Hobson is in Michigan taking a look at how the economy is playing into this year’s election.

He sat down with the governor to talk to him about the state’s economic recovery, and how Michiganders are feeling these days.

Rick Snyder is a Republican who has recently endorsed Mitt Romney in the presidential race.

He took over the state last year from Democrat Jennifer Granholm.

In today’s Mid-day Extra we have an extended interview with him.
