The Michigan governor’s race has seen $2.2 million in television ad spending through Memorial Day on TV ads, Mlive.com reports, sourcing the nonpartisan Michigan Campaign Finance Network.

Republican Rick Snyder leads the pack with $1.3MM spent across five ads, and Attorney General Mike Cox spent nearly $528k on two ads targeting GOP rival Pete Hoekstra, who has only spent $5,470. A fourth Republican, Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, spent nearly $50,000.

Republican Tom George and the two Democrats in the race, House Speaker Andy Dillon and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, have not done any television advertising yet.
