From her Facebook
Dear Friends,
Last night I called my friend, Mark Shauer, to discuss the problems facing Michigan and the heartless policies of the current administration that are leaving so many of our citizens behind. I am convinced that Mark is person who will be able to best guide us to victory in 2014, so I asked him to step forward and run for governor. He shares the values we hold dear and I will be honored to support him.

I looked, but couldn't find it.

I'm pretty cynical, so I'm wondering if some kind of deal was made?  You know, like being put at the top of the list as a pick for Lt. Gov?  Because, her people were aggressively vying for the gubernatorial nomination behind the scenes.  It seems odd she'd give it up so easily after a polite conversation with Mark.

Either way, this is good for the party.  This is about as quick and as coordinated I've ever seen the party coalesce.  The joke is that it's like herding cats to organize the multi-faceted constituencies of the Democratic Party, and this has been rather painless and bloodless.
