Snyder gives victory speech

DETROIT — Republican Rick Snyder says his election as Michigan's governor signals the start of an era of innovation for a state he says is broken.

Snyder says the state's economy and government have been broken "for too many years." He called for inclusiveness rather than divisiveness.

The former executive at computer maker Gateway Inc. delivered his victory speech Tuesday night at a Detroit hotel after his strong win over Democratic Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero.

He thanked Bernero, who called Snyder to offer his full support earlier in the evening.

Three third-party candidates also ran.

Tuesday marked the first gubernatorial race since 2002 with no incumbent and the first since the Michigan economy was rocked by the near-collapse of two automakers.
