UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. – It is a big year for politics here in Michigan. We are just over six months away from the August primaries.

Three of Michigan's Republican candidates for governor met face to face with voters at Saginaw Valley State University Monday where a town hall was held.

The candidates in attendance, Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, state Senator Patrick Colbeck, and Dr. Jim Hines, an OBGYN from the Saginaw area.

There was one person noticeably absent from the meeting: Attorney General Bill Schuette.

The candidates in attendance said it felt like it was a job interview. Since they are going to be working for the people, they really wanted to hear the concerns of mid-Michigan residents.

Infrastructure was one of the key topics discussed including the future of Bay City's bridges.

Auto insurance reform was addressed as well while several teachers wanted to know about the future of education.
