LANSING (WKZO) -- Democratic candidate for Michigan governor Mark Schauer has some thoughts on Governor Rick Snyder's relationship with seniors. Schauer says that he's been traveling the state to campaign early and campaign hard, and one thing he's repeatedly heard from seniors is that they don't like the pension tax.

Schauer, a former congressman, says that he met one man at an event in Atlanta, Michigan, who told him he's paying 16 hundred dollars more in taxes per year because of the pension tax. Schaur says the pension tax is just one thing that's been done under Snyder's administration that he thinks has pout Michigan on the wrong path.

One recent poll has Schauer with an eleven point lead over Governor Snyder with seniors.
