Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan stands during the national anthem at the unveiling ceremony of a statue of former U.S. President Gerald Ford in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, in this May 3, 2011 file photo. The computer executive-turned-politician famously dubbed himself "one tough nerd" as he campaigned in 2010 for governor, his first public office. Snyder will need plenty of toughness as he seeks solutions to the Midwestern state's difficult problems, including reviving its economy and cleaning up a financial mess in the city of Detroit.
