7:16 AM:

Governor-elect Rick Snyder will announce key positions in his new administration later today in Ann Arbor, The Detroit Free Press reports. And, there's speculation that one of the positions may go to a familiar name in the state: Andy Dillon. Dillon is a Democrat and currently the Speaker of the state House of Representatives. He was also a candidate for Governor in the Democratic primary. Dillon lost the primary to Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, who went on to lose the race for Governor to Snyder. Neither Snyder nor Dillon's camps would confirm the possible appointment.
