After losing the 2006 Senate race, Oakland County Sheriff and former state Sen. Michael J. Bouchard is taking another shot at statewide office. Bouchard, a Republican, will run for governor in 2010, he announced Wednesday with three stops across the state.

The sheriff put out a statement to the local press Tuesday night alerting them to the announcement and notified his police troops by e-mail this morning. In his roll-out, Bouchard emphasized the struggles facing families in Michigan due to the current state of the economy.  

“We know our problems didn’t just happen overnight. So there’s no quick fixes or simple solutions,” he said in a message on his campaign Web site . “It will take real leadership to dig us out of this mess and we can no longer allow Lansing thinking and the status quo to dictate our future decisions.”
