Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says the Great Lake State is on a "comeback" with advances in personal income, job growth, increasing home prices and a growing population, The Detroit News reports.

"We need to pass the word to other Michiganders and to everyone in the world that this is the comeback place to be in the country and the world," Snyder said as he launched his re-election campaign on Monday.

Snyder, a Republican, made his pitch at a Detroit automotive supplier company and said the bankrupt Motor City has made "tremendous progress" in getting its economic footing back.

"We're going to solve the problems here and I'm hoping we all work together," Snyder said.

The Wall Street Journal reports
that Michigan is "in the midst of a broad-based economic recovery."

The Journal cites a study of Bureau of Labor Statistics data by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, which reveals the state has created more than a quarter-million jobs since the official start of the U.S. economic recovery in June 2009.

That's a 7 percent increase, which is fifth best in the nation.
