Attorney General Bill Schuette was in Battle Creek on Tuesday, announcing his plans to run for re-election as the state’s top law enforcement officer.

Schuette says he stands on his record, protecting Michigan citizens from violent offenders human traffickers, and as a watchdog for the State Constitution.

Schuette appeared on Tuesday’s “Live with Renk” show and talked about his efforts, working with the legislature, to get justice for Michigan rape victims by starting a program to test backlogged evidence kits.

A couple dozen protesters were on hand at the corner of Dickman and Washington, to protest Michigan’s voter ban on gay marriage and there were also a few pro-marijuana protesters there.   Schuette days people will disagree on issues, and he's all for a reasoned and civil discussion, but also that it's his job to enforce the State Constitution.

The former State Senator, State Agriculture Commissioner, Judge and US Congressman says his long and diverse career in government service has helped him to be a better Attorney General.
