Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder isn't yet announcing his re-election bid, but he says there's still a lot he wants to accomplish that may spill into a second term.
The Republican governor told The Associated Press in a Friday interview that he has learned after a year and a half in office that "things don't happen overnight." He says that's where persistence pays off, one reason he's considering another run in 2014.
Snyder says he hopes people "are excited about what we've accomplished" and want to keep the same team in place through 2018.
The Ann Arbor venture capitalist won a five-way GOP primary in 2010 and the general election after spending nearly $6 million of his own money on the race. He took office Jan. 1, 2011.
