DETROIT - "We have come a

elect Rick Snyder told a packed
crowdatthe MichiganGOPwatch
party in the Wes-
tin Book Cadil-
lac Hotel here
tonight. The Ann
Arbor business-
man addressed the
watch party attendees after the
crowd chanted "We want Rick!"
Snyder, who branded himself
as a political outsider with the
business acumen needed to fix
Michigan, will be heading to the
governor's mansion come Janu-
ary after routing Democrat and
Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero.
Bernero conceded the race at
around 10 p.m. last night.
"The people of Michigan have
spoken," Snyder told the crowd
last night. "It's time to reinvent
Michigan."
In replacing Democratic Gov.
Jennifer Granholm, Snyder is
ushering in a new era of Repub-
lican rule in the state. Michigan's
last Republican governor was
John Engler, who was in office
from 1993 to 2002.
During his concession speech
at the MGM Grand hotel here,
Bernero said he fought a good
fight to protect the American
dream, which he believes is in
jeopardy.
"I'll keep fighting for people on
Main Street because those are the

"It's where I come from, and it's
what I'll always do. The fight for
the Michigan of opportunity goes
on for everyone."
Duringhis victory speech, Sny-

helped run his campaign and the
citizens of Michigan.
"For me this is much more than
an election," Snyder said. "This is
about an effort to reinvent Michi-
