Sources tell WMP former Governor John Engler will play a major role in former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Bob Young's US Senate campaign.

Engler will reportedly be a key adviser to Young behind the scenes, helping him manage the campaign.

Young announced he will be a candidate last week at a Republican breakfast in Midland...

Engler appointed Young to the Michigan Supreme Court in the early 90's, and the two are said to be close friends. They also apparently live in the same neighborhood.

Young will face businesswoman Lena Epstein, also a Co-Chair of the Michigan Trump campaign, for the right to battle Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November of 2018. 

The primary will be held in August of that year. No other candidates have announced so far...

    Still rumored that is trying to get John James into the Race. I could also support him!
