MACKINAC ISLAND (wkzo) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer is calling for a series of televised debates with Governor Rick Snyder. He wants one in August, one in September and a pair of them in October.

The former Congressman is proposing at least one to be televised statewide by PBS affiliates, and is also calling for a debate between the lieutenant governor candidates. Governor Snyder says it's "premature" to consider the proposal so early in the election season, and added that he's "fairly active" right now in his role as governor.
