LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is planning to have 10 town hall-style campaign events this fall during his re-election bid and says Democratic opponent Mark Schauer is welcome to attend.

Schauer’s campaign says it’s a “political stunt.”

Snyder’s campaign on Wednesday announced dates for the first three stops. The events will be held Sept. 29 in Kalamazoo, Oct. 2 in Sterling Heights and Oct. 4 in Detroit.

Snyder says the town hall tour is about communicating his optimistic message of Michigan’s “road to recovery” and hearing from citizens.

People wanting to attend must pre-register online. The Snyder camp says it’s looking for true undecided, independent voters.

Schauer says Snyder is unwilling to do televised debates and wants a “carefully scripted town hall with a partisan Republican audience.”
