SMITH TO LEAVE RACE; BE BONIOR'S RUNNING MATE

State Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith (D-Salem Township) is reportedly preparing
to drop out of the governor's race, and will join forces with U.S. Rep.
David Bonior as his candidate for lieutenant governor if he wins the
Democratic 
nomination.

Mr. Bonior and Ms. Smith have scheduled joint appearances in Detroit,
Lansing and Flint for Wednesday to announce the pairing.

If she leaves, Ms. Smith's exit from the race leaves the three major
candidates to vie for the Democratic nomination: Mr. Bonior, former
Governor James Blanchard and Attorney General Jennifer Granholm.
