LANSING, Mich. (FOX 2) - Even as attention further turns toward the 2024 general election, there are figures in Michigan's political circles that are already weighing in on the midterms after that. In 2026, voters will pick a new governor of Michigan. Among those considering a run for the executive seat is Jocelyn Benson, the Michigan Secretary of State. She told FOX 2 in an interview after the current governor's speech last week that she was looking closely at a run. "A lot of people have talked to me about it, I go to many events and people come up to me and ask me to run, encourage me to run," she said.
